Verdict

A winner at Musselburgh on New Year's Day, MR MOONSHINE made all to follow-up at Warwick three weeks ago. He beat subsequent winner Persian Snow on that occasion so Sue Smith's chaser looks to have every chance of landing a treble on that form. Kruzhlinin has a 6lb disadvantage to make up with the selection. But he's not easily dismissed as he recorded a double over track and trip at the end of last year that included a defeat of Maggio. Scotswell has plenty to find on today's terms but Opening Batsman has the past form to figure if rediscovering his best.
