Verdict

With Nigel Twiston Davies' yard in such excellent form at present, it might be worth taking a chance on ROCCO who looks sure to appreciate a step up in trip here after his run at Chepstow last time out where he was outpaced before staying on well to gain his first win under Rules. The son of Shantou will be better suited to the quick ground than most in here and has fitness on his side. Go Another One arrives in fine form with three wins from his last four starts and while the six-year-old will find this tougher, he's another runner who will have no issue with conditions. Gordon Elliot's mare Make My Heart Fly should be competitive after a respectable run in Listed class two starts back.
  1. Rocco
  2. Go Another One
