TYRANNOSAURUS REX can roar home in front here, while Misaro is very much respected. Derek Shaw has placed the selection well to win three of his last four races, finishing runner-up in the other, all of which have been over this minimum trip. There still looked to be more to come when winning with more in hand than the official one length margin suggested at Chester last time and a 6lb rise may not be enough to stop him going in again. Misaro enjoyed his first win for a year when obliging at Salisbury and he too shoulders 6lbs extra here. He is still well treated on some old form, and if back in the groove again now he will be tough to beat. Garstang has not won on turf for almost two years, but he is in good form on the Polytrack and if able to transfer those abilities then he'd have a squeak off bottom weight. The Tatling would have romped home at these weights a few years ago but it is doubtful that he will today. Cape Royal needs a drop in the weights, while Red Rosanna looks a more likely threat after winning readily at Newmarket last time, though Tyrannosaurus Rex is the suggestion today.
