Bedrock Fred looks a nice prospect and will be thereabouts here if handling these bigger fences. Galbally King has been in excellent form between the flags while veteran Behind The Scenes beat Righteous Glory at the Surrey Union earlier this month in a race in which Daintydavey was beaten when falling. FITZ VOLONTE beat a big field last time and that should stand him in good stead back under Rules. He's got more scope than the majority of these so is preferred to Gamato and John Daniell.
