Annes Rocket is the only C&D winner here and is running well enough to make his presence felt in an open contest. Choose The Moment enjoyed the soft ground at Ffos Las and any rain would greatly enhance his chances as it would the veteran Doctor Hilary, whose best form is with some give and who looks quite well handicapped. Pose has dropped to a fair mark and is consistent enough to be on the short-list, but Kieren Fallon was on board when BEAUTIFUL LANDO scored from today's mark at Wolverhampton and his mount looks well treated provided he transfers that Polytrack form to turf.
