Big Thunder is upped 10lb after scoring over 1m2f at Haydock last week to land a double. There should be more to come over this longer trip but there's needs to be and a chance is taken on ROSACEOUS. She only won a maiden at Newbury last month but the runner-up has since won and Daniel Kubler's filly should relish today's extra test of stamina. Glenard is proven over the distance having gone close at Windsor last time but he's up another 2lb for his trouble while Knight's Parade steps up a grade after his winning run came to an end at the same track last month.
