Paul Hanagan takes the mount on Inaad and it's surprising that the colt sticks to maidens having qualified for handicaps with a mark of 69. Four-year-old's aren't harshly punished under the conditions of this race so we think BE MY ROCK can make experience count. Rae Guest's filly placed on all four of her starts last year and she can be forgiven a disappointing reappearance at Kempton. Bordah has yet to see a racecourse and there appears to a distinct soft ground influence in his pedigree. Young Jay should have learnt plenty from his debut at Ripon while Pearl Queen was unable to cope as they sprinted off a funereal gallop at Windsor.
