Rocktherunway came with a withering run to score over course and distance last month but never figured off a higher mark at Musselburgh next time and this looks a lot more competitive. Albonny may still be improving and should make a bold bid to complete a four-timer while Mr Snoozy has already won twice on Town Moor this year and shouldn't be ignored with Jason Hart again taking off 5lb. Running Deer should be winning soon and has the beating of Ashdown Lad on the form book but TWELVE STRINGS deserves a change of luck after two seconds this season. Faster going proved no problem at Musselburgh last time and he can race off the same mark here.
