In depth

Verdict

Be My Rock hasn't really improved this year but is dropping down the weights and has a good apprentice on board in this. Tyro Tywod was only beaten a neck at Bath last time but is 4lb higher here while Vastly had every chance when favourite for a maiden handicap at Yarmouth when last seen and is proving difficult to win with. ROSSELLI is from an in-from yard and is given another chance despite finding one too good in a Ripon seller last time when well backed as Stag Hill was also beaten in a seller latest and is more exposed.
