Scarlet Rocks was second over track and trip and is only 2lb higher while Northern Bolt won on heavy ground at Hamilton last month. Ryedale Dancer was successful on the all-weather two runs ago but then ran a shocker on soft ground at Bath while the handicapper has had his say with Fama Mac since he won at Catterick and Piste has two ways of running. We'll concentrate on the three-year-olds and WINDYGOUL LAD can come out best of the younger generation. The drop to 5f didn't suit at Newcastle last time but he twice went close over this trip at Hamilton last month and still looks to be on a decent mark. Holy Angel and Celestial Dawn should also be thereabouts if running up to their best.
