The majority of these are in decent nick at present and several are due a win, notably Kingscroft and ORBIT THE MOON who have both filled the runner-up spot the last twice. The former has been in fair form for the past seven weeks in a busy campaign and looks an obvious contender but the latter is progressing well and has only suffered narrow defeats on his last two runs. Very well suited by 7f on quick ground, he seems sure to go close for the Dods team under a very useful apprentice. Hot Rod Mamma has threatened to get her head in front more than once in recent weeks. She's probably been just a shade below par the last twice but even her sixth place behind Sennockian Star at the weekend was a commendable effort. A mark of 73 remains feasible and connections obviously feel that she can get involved again in an open-looking affair.
