Verdict

A tight handicap to close the card and MATTEROFACT is nominated over the likes of Desperate Dan and Azygous. Gary Moore seems to know how to get the best out of ROCKERand he won well when beating Matterofact last time. However, on these terms our selection should reverse the form today, especially as he has a better draw. Desperate Dan has been in good form of late and he gets on well with his young pilot. He will need to be produced fast and late to win this, but he is in good heart and he should be in the mix. Pick Up Sticks ran well here last time, while Azygous is better than he showed in that race. Digital wins in his turn and he can't be ruled out, but in a race where many have some sort of a chance, we will pick Matterofact to lead them home.
