Verdict

Tartan Snow won one of these events at Kelso before finding the much lower rated Pena Dorada to good at the same track. The former may well reverse running here but Moscow Menace has finished runner-up to the aforementioned pair on his last couple of starts and has more to do. Sacred Mountain beat Tartan Snow last year and is not easily dismissed with a recent comeback run under his belt, though it's the Irish raider WALDEN that gets the vote. He went very close to catching the in-form That's Rhythm at Musselburgh last month and a repeat should see him come out best today.
