IN THE ROUGH can complete a quick double for trainer and jockey as his second to Dubai Prince at Market Rasen in April is form that is head and shoulders above that of the opposition. Tiananmen could be the danger after showing promise at Towcester as the extra half-mile looks sure to suit. Heston was third over a longer trip here last month but still well beaten, as was Freddie Mael Duin at Uttoxeter. But Pearl Spice won twice over 2m on the Flat and could go well if taking to hurdles.
