Verdict

Hughie Morrison doesn't have many runners under NH Rules but has taken a liking to this bumper, having trained the winner twice in the last five years. So you would expect CARRAIG ROCK, who is a half-brother to sprinter Sohraab and useful 7f winner Valencha, to be fully primed for his racecourse debut and he gets the nod. Ceevee also catches the eye on breeding being related to Irish Flat winner Reggae Rock while Coyaba and Leviche are others to note. The former is a half-brother to bumper and hurdles winner Letsby Avenue while the latter counts Flat winner Winner's Wish and the versatile pair All Annalena and Schism among his close relatives.
