JACOB'S PILLOW stands out in this. He's been placed in both starts to date and finished behind a subsequent winner when third at Ripon on his latest outing. Terhaab should make further improvement and is preferred to Monsieur Lavene and Thundering Cloud, but a newcomer could prove a bigger threat. Rochester was purchased for 100,000gns in April this year and any support for him or Shaft Of Light, a half-brother to a couple of winners on the all-weather, should be noted.
