Fit, on form and progressive ROCK A DOODLE DOO gets the vote in a decent little handicap with Green Lightning and Kumbeshwar looking real live contenders. On a four-timer the selection has looked progressive over the winter months. Granted he only just scrapped home last time but with him on this form he can improve on his return to turf. Green Lightning makes a handicap debut off a fair looking mark for a yard in form so should go well and any market move in his favour would be seen as a positive. Trainer David Evans continues to be among the winners and he sends out Kumbeshwar who will be fit after a solid spin on the all-weather recently and there could be yet more to come from Jamie Spencer's ride. Rightstep looks fairly enough treated on his first handicap run while the same can't really be said for Shraayeen who will have to improve after his handicap bow to score off this mark. This looks our best bet of the card and it will be Rock A Doodle Doo.
