Verdict

Dorback arrives in cracking form but Steve Drowne is going to have his work cut out getting Violet Jordan's inmate home from stall 11. In contrast, RUSTY ROCKET is drawn two and must go well granted a sharp stalls exit. He's in good nick at present, too, scoring in a fair Haydock handicap before finishing a good third in competitive company at Haydock during the week. Cruise To The Limit has claims off the bottom perch as does Sir Maximillian from the other end of the weights. It would also be wise to include Chooseday in calculations with his yard now in good form as he's gone well here in the past, as have Doctor Parkes and Secret Look.
