ROCKALONG found the hot favourite too good over a mile at Lingfield last time when fading inside the closing stages. Today's shorter trip should suit on that evidence and he can get off the mark today. Kalokagathia made it four seconds from four starts this year when runner-up to Dance Express over C&D last time while Blank Czech can figure on his best form but is too inconsistent to have much confidence in. The remainder with experience have a bit to find and the newcomer Zaminate, a half-sister to a couple of winners, could prove a bigger danger. 7.00
