MOON ARROW built on a solid effort on the all-weather when runner-up in a similar contest at Catterick last time and should go close if running to a similar level of form this evening. Gris De Pron may be able to better the level of form he showed at Wetherby last time now fitted with a first-time tongue-tie. Alcanar and Boutan have place claims if putting their best forward while any money for dual Flat winner Dusky Raider would also be interesting on his NH bow.
ALCANAR's 3 in-frame efforts just about set the standard here and he can strike for the Tony Carroll team. Moon Arrow shaped nicely when runner-up on last month's hurdling debut and should go well again, while Boutan had an excuse last time and won't be too far away if bouncing back to anywhere near her best.
