My Nosy Rosy opened her account at the 17th attempt in a conditionals' race at Worcester last month but is 5lb higher here, though is still preferred to the penalised pair Cusheen Bridge and Volcanic Jack. THINK OUT LOUD had looked progressive prior to his last of four at Worcester in July. He might be worth another chance with his stable in cracking form. Flash Crash may be open to further improvement while Stay In My Heart's latest second at Fontwell was her best run yet in this country.
