On a line through Tukitinyasok there should be little to choose here between Rosko and SQUALL, who is given another chance. The selection was perhaps slightly disappointing at Ripon last week, but there were excuses with traffic problems when he tried to deliver his challenge. Previous efforts suggested that he is better than that and a 1lb drop is a plus. Brian Ellison turns to the visor for Rosko, who has won over this trip and comes here in decent form, so is respected. Observatory Star looks good each-way material, while conditions and distance suit Dream Win, though the handicapper may just have his measure.
