In depth

Verdict

Moss Street will be interesting if running after being due to make his chasing debut here last night, likewise Muwaqeet, due to contest the maiden hurdle on the same card. Bellgrove has some fair handicap form of note but does have an absence to overcome and NATHAN'S PRIDE is preferred irrespective of who does and doesn't turn up. He's been in cracking form with three wins from his last four starts, including a success under Alan Johns, who takes the ride now. His claim will be valuable and the Vaughan inmate is taken to maintain his winning run.
