Rosairlie had been threatening to get her head in front before a poor effort at York last time and Embsay Crag has failed to figure since scoring at Pontefract by 10 lengths in August. Kodicil was well beaten off today's mark last time having won at Ripon earlier while though Almost Gemini landed a hat-trick on the Polytrack early in the year he is yet another in the handicapper's grip now. Generous Dream has over three lengths to find with COWSLIP on latest running at Ripon and the latter is taken to go in again with further progress on the cards.
