Verdict
ROCKPOINT shaped well in soft ground at Ascot last time out and has been going the right way over timber in three starts this term to believe he'll have a race of this nature in him. He earns the nod to make a winning start in handicaps for the Tizzard team. Mixchievous isn't overlooked easily having won on reappearance at Chepstow, though a 5lb hike and the suspicion he may want further are enough to see him passed over. Night Of Sin should come on for the reappearance while last year's winner Trans Express should be suited down in trip, though remains 4lb higher than when collecting 12 months ago.
