Verdict

Zain Shamardal was conceding 10lb to Jutland when beaten three lengths at Jebel Ali and was made favourite on his return to this track a month ago but had no answer to ROCHDALE, who once again showed his liking for the track and trip to gain victory number five here. He looks the likely winner as the classy Averroes is better over further as he showed when making a winning debut on the track over 1m6f last New Year's Eve. Tanfeeth has raced in strong company since arriving here and will have come on for last month's run over a trip too short but Profondo Rosso will find this much tougher despite a smooth success in a handicap here a fortnight ago.
