Verdict

Considering his background, INDIGO ROCK has been a little disappointing so far over fences but he still has some scope and this looks an excellent opportunity to open his account. Foundation Man won at Kempton in November and then ran well behind The Italian Yob at Sandown. He's visored for the first time here and looks to have every chance but a penalty may be the undoing of veteran recent course winner Work Boy while Be My Deputy was pulled up at Newcastle last month and is still high enough in the weights. Roc De Guye was in good form in the autumn but may need this and My Idea is also worth opposing off his current mark.
