ROCKALONG was well supported to make a winning reappearance at Kempton and supporters didn't have too much to worry about. He's the type his trainer does so well with and a 5lb rise in the ratings shouldn't be enough to stop him. Twenty One Choice is going from strength to strength and though 19lb higher than when his winning run began the handicapper may not have got to him yet and he looks sure to go well. Toga Tiger has completed a hat-trick on Polytrack and not surprisingly has shot up the weights though he's another who may not be finished just yet. Karaka Jack had dropped to a lowly mark when landing a lady rider's race at Doncaster on Saturday so a 6lb penalty may not pose too much of a problem while Tigers Tale made a promising comeback at Kempton and was in superb form around this time last year.
