The Moyglass Flyer (4/1), Moon Over Germany (4/1), Thatsy (7/1), Poseidon (8/1), Jukebox Jive (9/1), Ben Dundee (12/1), Ilikedwayurthinkin (14/1), Shumaker (14/1), La Sorelita (16/1), Tiger Voice (16/1), Share The Honour (16/1), Ena Baie (16/1), Future Proof (20/1), Got Trumped (20/1), Tandem (25/1), Dis Donc (25/1), Daybreak Boy (33/1), Golden Jewel (33/1), Mandarin Monarch (33/1), Golden Spear (33/1), Barwell (33/1), Yaha Fizz (40/1), Cliff House (40/1), Tara Dylan (50/1), Ejayteekay (50/1), Supreme Vinnie (66/1)

Verdict
Most of these are pretty exposed, but that is not the case with the twice-raced THE MOYGLASS FLYER, who shaped best on his handicap debut after a break last time, and should benefit from both the run and the fitting of a tongue tie. Thatsy is equally unexposed and appeals as the main danger despite dropping in trip. Yaha Fizz likely to go off at much bigger odds, but has been given a chance by the handicapper after an absence, and could surprise.
  1. The Moyglass Flyer
  2. Thatsy
  3. Yaha Fizz
