Verdict

ROCKY STONE is dropped in trip and that may just enable him to recapture his best form, though he did win over 3m1f at Wetherby in January. Tribal Dance only beat Mist The Boat by a head over course and distance back in September and the runner-up is 12lb better off now, though hasn't raced since. Peqeno Diablo won at Fontwell on Boxing Day but has gone backwards since and none of the others have shown enough lately to suggest they can get involved.
