Verdict

An official mark of 72 is usually good enough to land a modest maiden race such as this and the returning ROCK N ROUGE can open her account. A beaten favourite on her last couple of starts, she should take care of these on her reappearance. Narborough went close here last time but has plenty to find with the selection at the weights while Purford Green is even harder to fancy on today's terms. Both Spinning Cobblers and Bush Warrior showed glimpses of promise on their respective debuts and may pose a threat as they drop back in distance.
