Va'Vite won at Newton Abbot in August after placed efforts at Southwell and Bangor but she hasn't been seen since. Bally Rone, Going Concern, Power Of God and Sergeant Mattie all won between the flags last time and are worth keeping in mind but KAYF MOSS should take all the beating. John Flint's gelding has a very nice NH pedigree and his second to Heath Hunter over course and distance at the start of the month suggests he has a future.
