Ryan Moore can get punters off to the best possible start on Craven day at Newmarket aboard the Sylvester Kirk-trained MUSIC SOCIETY.

He makes his handicap debut from a mark of 95 which won't be easy to overcome but he promised plenty at two and is reported to have wintered well.

The strong-travelling son of Society Rock is likely to be suited by the prevailing ground and the booking of Moore tells you all you need to know about the regard in which he's held.

No shortage of quality to this year's Abernant but LE BRIVIDO does stand out on the form book.

Andre Fabre has a tremendous record with his Newmarket raiders and this four-year-old is entitled to be campaigned right at the top level this season after winning the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot last summer.

That was no flash in the pan and although seven furlongs may well be his optimum trip, he should take the world of beating here if resuming anything close to peak fitness.

TARA MIST looks up to conceding weight all round in the novices' handicap chase on Cheltenham's mares-only card.

She's only 4lb higher than when winning at Leicester in February and she was far from disgraced in relatively strong company at Haydock when last seen. Drying ground looks a plus if anything and Richard Johnson - who was in the place at Leicester - takes the ride again.

Warren Greatrex has had a really good season and his PETTICOAT TAILS rounds off the Yankee in the Listed handicap hurdle.

She was a good fifth to Roksana in a Grade Two at Newbury last time and the winner advertised the form with a fine effort at Aintree.

Petticoat Tails has progressed with just about every outing this season and, being a daughter of Presenting, she's entitled to be even better now the ground has finally started to dry out a little.
