NORTHERN ROCKED makes a quick reappearance after a fine victory over Pintura and his stablemate Stuccodor in a very tough handicap at Galway on Saturday and in that kind of form would be difficult to beat. Greek Canyon scored at Fairyhouse last month off a mark of 77 and defied a 13lb rise at Leopardstown four days later. He's running well enough to be a threat to all while Ballyorban would almost certainly get into the action if the ground turns soft as his two victories have been gained in very testing conditions. One True Love doesn't mind any going and is consistent enough and this looks her best trip so she should get competitive.
