ROSKILLY can take advantage of favourable terms on his first start since December. Placed over a mile at Kempton on a couple of occasions, Andrew Balding's colt will appreciate this longer trip. The same comment also applies to Dance Of Heroes on his comeback after a third over 7f here in October and Moontown is yet another lightly-raced type expected to do better over middle-disatnces. Song And Dance Man has a recent outing over 1m4f under his belt and is not easily dismissed in a wide-open contest.
