This looks open. Grayswood scored over the course and distance in September and returned to winning ways at Ffos Las where he needed every yard of the 1m6f trip to catch today's rival Rowlestone Lass, who is no better off at the weights but should be suited by the shorter trip. SWEEPING ROCK, who was close up in third, was impeded at a crucial stage and, as he had won on this track earlier, he's taken to reverse the form and gain his second success. Happy Families won here in May but was beaten a long way on her latest start at Salisbury but Significant Move showed that he stays this trip on the same track last time and must be considered on that run.
