BLACK RODDED ran well to finish second to Quickaswecan, rated 78, at Brighton during the week. A similar effort should see her off the mark taking on lesser opposition today. Flicksta finished way behind the selection last time and Needless Shouting has shown his best over 7f so far. There was little between Foxtrot Pearl and Warm Order at Nottingham though neither threatened the winner.
