Verdict

Rocky Stone looked as though he might be progressive when landing a Wetherby handicap so it was a surprise when he ran poorly when favourite at Musselburgh. He can do better but Millers Reef has struggled from his new mark since his victory at Wetherby in December and was beaten a long way when runner-up last time. AUBERGE has won three times over hurdles, all on good ground including twice here. With conditions likely to dry out further, he's give the nod. Bollin Fiona is another who generally goes well here though it's a long time since she won while Stickleback is still a maiden though she would have a chance on her narrow defeat by Adili at Wetherby.
