RHYMERS HA' scored at Kelso in December but couldn't cope with the heavy going when back at the same track last time. He gets another chance here as this doesn't look very competitive. Stanley Bridge is a course and distance winner and is upped 6lb for his recent win at Sedgefield while Flogarose, a multiple winner in the French provinces, failed to complete on her debut for new connections at Musselburgh last month. Endeavor was still well beaten despite finishing in a place on his last couple of starts but Jonny Delta showed a bit more at Warwick last time and Full Speed could also get involved.
