Rocket Ronnie had to battle hard to land a double when scoring over a mile here last time. Upped in distance off a higher mark, he looks worth opposing with BOLD AND FREE. The latter was beaten only a length over today's trip at Windsor last week and David Elsworth's charge makes more appeal than El Molino Blanco and Riponian, who both have plenty to find with Rocket Ronnie. With the remainder badly out of sorts, the lightly-raced Lexi's Dancer looks next best on only her second start handicapping
