SALVATORE FURY has been beaten in a couple of starts over the minimum trip since scoring over 6f at Carlisle last month. That win looks stronger form than Saxonette's recent victory in a seller over track and trip and Keith Dalgleish's charge gets the nod. Rock Canyon finished well behind Saxonette last time and was engaged to run here yesterday. The latter looks the main threat as Dark Lane is getting no closer despite slipping down the weights and the remainder are even harder to fancy given their recent poor form.
