Majestic Manannan went close over 5f at Pontefract last week but this is tougher while though Tajneed has been running consistently well in plating company he will need more in this company. Wild Sauce is getting closer but over the minimum trip so ROKER PARK is preferred. The latter had Mutafaakir behind when third in a higher grade sprint at Thirsk last Saturday and a similar effort could see David O'Meara's charge back to winning ways in this company.
