Verdict

Takeitfromalady was taking on lesser company when runner-up at Leicester, while Bitaphon also has more to do than when successful at Southwell. Blinkers didn't do much for Alborz at Kempton last time and he's had plenty of chances but Onebytheknows is gradually getting the hang of things and was third in a maiden over C&D last week. The Giving Tree is open to further improvement and Uncle Roger could be worth a try over this longer trip but well like the look of COCKNEY ROCKER on his handicap bow. Placed at York and Folkestone earlier this year, he wasn't unduly punished once his chance had gone at Yarmouth last month and that run should have blown away any cobwebs.
