It would be no surprise to see old Rough Rock go well in a race of this nature. Yarmouth winner Sweet Talking Guy was second at Kempton last month while Percythepinto is starting to look well handicapped only a pound higher than when successful at Lingfield a year ago. DANCING MAITE has won twice over this course and distance and only found one too good here last time. Josh Quinn takes off 7lb and Roy Bowring's eight-year-old is almost certain to give supporters a run for their money again. Ferryview Place may be best of the rest.
