In depth

Verdict

ON THE MOVE will be expected to get off the mark in this having been beaten only a length on her debut behind Agent Fedora at this track. That form looks superior to Letmego's recent fourth at this course and she should come out best. The latter still looks the main danger as John Gully has yet to threaten and Whatagoa finished a long way behind the selection last time. Newforge House makes his racecourse debut and is worth noting in the betting as his dam is a half-sister to the high-class Champion Hurdler Collier Bay.
