C&D winner two starts back was sixth here latest in a similar event off 2lb higher (same mark as here). 7lb claimer here helps the cause weight wise and not ruled out.

C&D scorer last time out where he came through late to win by a head. Only raised 1lb for that effort so solid claims in bid for follow up and certainly a leading contender.

Having been unplaced in 18 straight starts her win at Dundalk latest (5f) possibly should have come as more of a surprise than 6/1 odds suggested. 6lb penalty for that ready win here and not travelled over for a look round.

12-race maiden ran one of his best races latest when a close third over C&D. Handicapper aids with another 1lb back so hopes high of another bold bid.

Wolverhampton winner in December met trouble in running latest when seventh at the same venue off 4lb higher. Handicapper may have his measure but hails from a small stable in terrific form.

Gained fourth course success over C&D two starts back before a short head defeat by Dandy Highwayman last time out. Up 1lb so 1lb better off with that rival and fully expecting him to be in the thick of things again.

Winless in 2018 but beaten just a neck into fourth over C&D penultimately in real blanket finish and decent effort next when sixth here. Visor now added and could go close if that makes a difference.

7f turf two-year-old winner unplaced in light 2018 campaign for these connections. Returns from a lengthy absence here so may just need the run.

Nine-race maiden ran two solid efforts here over 7f (second and fourth) before latest never nearer seventh back to 6f at Wolverhampton. Suspect will again find this trip sharp enough.

Maiden went close a couple of times early in 2018 but has a lengthy absence to overcome on stable debut here so is rated a risky proposition overall.

Not just a maiden of 24 starts but yet to even place. Fair midfield efforts of late but surprise if she betters that from out of the handicap.

Not better than eighth here in last four races all over 5f. Just won once since July 2015 and tough to add to that from out of the handicap. Also declared Lingfield Wednesday.

Betting

Forecast

Ken's Sam's (9/4), Breathoffreshair (11/2), Roaring Rory (13/2), Skyva (7/1), Astrophysics (9/1), Dandy Highwayman (11/1), Scenery (11/1), Nutopia (16/1), Leeshaan (33/1), High Anxiety (66/1), Camanche Grey (66/1), Trulove (80/1), Miss Rebero (200/1)

Verdict

ROARING RORY is one of two live contenders for Ollie Pears and after winning last time over C&D he has obvious claims with a rise of just 1lb for that success. Impressive Dundalk winner Ken's Sam's is respected under the penalty as is perennially competitive C&D specialist Breathoffreshair.
