Next Cry takes a drop in class in an attempt to gain that elusive first win and should be thereabouts in this company. Baileys Over Ice is better than a recent poor effort at Nottingham suggests and Emman Bee had Chrissycross behind when going close at Warwick last month. Coach Montana won a seller at Yarmouth in September but reverted to type when well beaten last time and preference is for REMEMBER ROCKY. He found 1m2f beyond him last time, but ran out an easy winner over today's trip at Chepstow before that and Matthew Lawson's claim cancels out a fair chunk of a 9lb rise in the weights.
