Rockgoat isn't much better than a plater but has dropped to a fair mark and should make his presence felt. Spinning Ridge gained his 10th all-weather victory at Lingfield early this month and keeps finding ways to get on the scoresheet while Tatting is only 4lb higher than when successful over the course and distance in November. Kielty's Folly hasn't won since the summer of 2011 but his consistency means the assessor can't drop him. JOHN POTTS is on an even longer losing run but in his case the handicapper has been lenient and he looked ready to win soon when narrowly beaten by Flag Of Glory a couple of weeks ago. This looks a good opportunity and he can return to winning ways.
