ROSSETTI won at Kempton last month on his seasonal debut and first start for James Fanshawe. There looks plenty more to come from him and he's fancied to confirm running with third-placed Tamareen, who ran out of steam in the closing stages suggesting a drop back in trip may suit. The latter carries the first colours of his owner here ahead of Nawaashi, who also finished third on his return to action over a mile at Ripon, and that looks better form than Freckenham's 6f maiden at Brighton last month. City Legend has already won at Beverley this year but has ran poorly twice since.
