Moohareeba may not have won in her first three starts yet is very well bred for artificial surfaces and looks to go close here tonight. So far she's improved from race to race in a trio of career outings to date and looked to have relished the trip when upped to 1m1f when two lengths behind in 3rd to Father Of Jazz. The winner had the benefit of the rail that day and Moohareeba can be forgiven for not claiming victory that day. She steps up again in trip here to 1m3f which should definitely suit given that she is a half sister to Winter Derby winner Dubai Warrior.
Promising apprentice Benoit De La Sayette, who has had just 12 rides so far in a short career but has already ridden 5 winners for a 42% strike rate, is booked for the ride.
The biggest danger to the selection comes in the form of Narjes who normally runs at Lingfield and was narrowly beaten second on Sunday. However the form of Moohareeba’s short career so far seems the strongest on offer and with further improvement likely, especially with the step up in trip should take all the beating.
