Verdict

Roc De Guye has struck for with a vengeance, winning his last two starts at Stratford and Bangor. But he's never won over 3m and WATCH HOUSE also arrives on a hat-trick. Michael Gates' charge thumped subsequent Newton Abbot winner Sadler's Star by 22 lengths at Worcester before winning a better race by 14 lengths at Uttoxeter. He's struck up a good understanding with Ally Stirling and can grab another victory before the handicapper takes his measure. Terfel's Oscar won at Perth in July but has disappointed since, though still makes more appeal than Lord Lescribaa and My Friend George. Rossbrin could be a decent each-way bet if responding to first-time blinkers.
