Roland won a similar event at Lingfield before disappointing when favourite at the same track last time. He finished a couple of places behind third-placed Don Eduardo when Gabrial The Boss proved too good and collateral form with the latter gives WALTER WHITE the edge. Andrew Balding's charge has to reverse latest running at this track with Myzamour but should do so on better terms and gets the vote with a visor replacing the usual cheekpieces. The remaining trio are less exposed but have some improving to do if they're to figure on today's terms.
