Unless winning pointer Pure Poteen steps up to the plate on his debut under Rules, this should be plain sailing for ROUQUINE SAUVAGE who scored very easily on her racecourse debut over course and distance five weeks ago and looks capable of defying a penalty. Frank N Fair looks safely held but Lucky Thirteen showed promise at Worcester in July and might have a bit of scope.
