SHORT TAKES returned a losing favourite when stepped up in distance at Doncaster last time. He'd earlier coasted home over today's trip at Sedgefield and gets another chance in this. Choisan finished a distance behind the selection at Sedgefield and Rosquero, a winner at Ayr last month, looks a bigger threat. Copt Hill was narrowly beaten at Catterick in January but the handicapper has taken no chances and raised him 9lb for that while Rupert Bear has failed to figure since finishing runner-up in last year's renewal off a 3lb higher mark.
