Red Roar has been running well at this track of late but his ability to handle genuine soft ground has yet to be tested. while Polytrack winner Rhal went close on a fast surface here back in May. Basle won't mind the conditions and is back on a winning mark, but she's struggling for form and a chance is taken on MILTON OF CAMPSIE. She went close in testing ground at Nottingham in October and, off a 5lb lower mark today, John Balding's mare could be ready to strike now on only her third start of the year.
