Verdict

Yarmouth third Thecornishcowboy is starting to look well handicapped but both of Roger Thorpe's victories so far have come on Fibresand. Rockweiller was put up 8lb for winning at Ayr and looks too close in the weights to the in-form CAMELOPARDALIS. She's on a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Yarmouth and the drop back in distance shouldn't be a problem.
