Fit from hurdling, RIGHT STUFF is clear on official ratings. He's not guaranteed to run up to his mark back over 1m4f but has so much in hand that Gary Moore's charge won't need to be at his best to land this. Icelander comes out next best at the weights though he's been beaten out of sight since scoring over a mile at Kempton early this year. Renegotiate was a losing favourite in a claimer last month and Irish import Naael has yet to show any worthwhile form for his current yard.
