Some fair types here but none more so than BURKE'S ROCK who was pushed along from some way out before outstaying her rivals in a Newmarket handicap last time. This extra quarter mile seems a logical move by the Noseda team and the daughter of Cape Cross can defy a 6lb rise in the ratings. Prussian was disappointing at Nottingham but is well worthy of consideration returned to this better ground. She rates the main threat but may struggle to concede 6lb to the selection. Ruscello looked a colt on the improve when scoring at Lingfield and should progress again. He completes the shortlist.
