Verdict

Raduis Bleu hasn't been seen since winning at Ffos Las in May off a 7lb lower mark. Ringa Bay and Rocky Bender also return from a break, though the latter still has scope over the larger obstacles, but Western King ran well twice at Newton Abbot last month and Danandy won over hurdles in the summer. THE ROCKIES won a novices' handicap over track and trip just under a year ago and will be all the better for a recent outing over timber. He could be the answer to an open-looking handicap in which bottom weight Michigan Assassin could also play a part if in the mood.
