Rough Courte has had plenty of chances but in better company than this. She went close at York last week but the less exposed ROCK N ROUGE was only a length behind in third. The latter looks likely to improve further on only her third start and gets the vote. Sleepy Sioux ran well at Yarmouth last time and first-time headgear may see her finish ahead of both Flashy Queen and Dandeena, who both finished runner-up on their latest outings. Miss Atomic Bomb and Perfect Pursuit could prove best of the newcomers.
