Another Wise Kid continued his progress with a victory at Redcar a fortnight ago, but this is tougher and he's 9lb higher than when scoring over C&D in May. Master Rooney is slipping down the weights and got a bit closer last time, while Thirsk winner Oldjoesaid needs more cut in the ground to show his best. NOODLES BLUE BOY has returned to form this month and has gone close on his last three starts. Dropped in class today, he's fancied to confirm recent running with Hazelrigg and get his head back in front.
