Verdict

Less than two lengths separated BLADES LAD and Docs Legacy behind Totalize over C&D last month but Peter Niven's charge should confirm the form and can go one better today. James Ewart has acquired a useful prospect in Rockawango, who won a Listed hurdle at Auteuil in September for Yann-Marie Porzier, while Jonny Delta was third on soft ground over 2m on the Flat here in October and also placed behind the promising Buthelezi over hurdles at Aintree last month. He looks the pick of the remainder.
