Kayf Moss has a cracking pedigree and should be noted for future reference. Weigh It Up is another newcomer who should have a future while Letbeso has already won between the flags. But there are three in this who have already shown decent form in bumpers. Heath Hunter won for Jim Cullotty at Thurles in November and has now joined David Pipe, who trained the winner when Benefique Royale was second over today's course and distance on her racecourse debut. INTERNATIONALAPEAL only found one too good on his debut under Rules at Chepstow - he can go one better today.
