ROSSA PARKS was left to come home alone at Wincanton when Steady Girlfriend fell at the last. But she would have won easily in any case and the handicapper has left her on the same mark - another victory for Neil Mulholland's mare beckons. Flemi Two Toes probably deserves a change of luck but may prefer a softer surface and Ya Hafed makes his chasing debut following a lengthy absence. There's a good chance that the switch to fences will bring about some improvement in Ballinderry, however, while Faith Keeper once chased home Flemenstar between the flags though was still beaten 20 lengths.
