CAPO ROSSO has the best recent form and is worth another chance. He came out best at Warwick before going close again over 7f here and, if ridden with a bit more restraint today, looks likely to stay the extra distance. Henry The Aviator is a threat on the back of another narrow-margin defeat at Thirsk a week ago and Lady Of The House is not out of this back on fast ground. The remainder have some improving to do to figure though better is expected from World Record dropping back in trip ahead of Etijaah and Evangelist.
