Verdict

ROCKET ROB is the form pick to land this opener at the expense of Leadenhall Lass and Musical Bridge. The selection landed himself back in the winners enclosure at Yarmouth last month and was not totally discredited at Brighton last time out when finishing third of eight behind Cavendish Road. He seems to be running off a fair enough mark and with luck in running he ought to be good enough to win again. Leadenhall Lass broke her maiden tag first time of asking at Windsor last season but has been winless ever since. That said she did catch the eye when finishing a decent third of eleven at Salisbury last time out and has been dropped to what looks like a potentially lenient mark so any moves in the market should be noted. Musical Bridge broke his maiden tag at Nottingham last month and was not beaten far off his current mark at Pontefract last time out and a repeat performance will see him in the shake up. Rocket Rob looks the form pick and is the percentage call.
