Gambino was winning for the first time in 15 starts over 7f here last week and may struggle under a penalty. JOYFUL SOUND makes more appeal as Brian Ellison's charge drops in class on the back of a couple of placed efforts and gets the nod on that basis. Look On By has been well beaten since winning at Hamilton and Paddy's Rock is preferred to Southwell third Benidorm and Taxiformissbyron, a runner-up over 1m2f last week.
