Rock Up showed a bit more at Lingfield last time having slipped down the weights but never threatened the winner. Sedenoo also never looked like challenging despite finishing third at Warwick and drops back in trip along with Hazza The Jazza. Polytrack winner Work Ethic may do better back over 6f today but none of the above inspire much confidence and MERIDIUS is preferred. He was expected to finish closer at Windsor last time but is worth another chance in this company as he makes his handicap debut
