Rock Pipit has run well here in the past with his close second to Bashir Biyoum Zain being a particularly good effort. Indus Valley makes his debut on the surface and suffered in the soft ground at Listowel last time. His earlier head second to Prince Jock on much faster going at Galway puts him in the picture. HONEST BROKER has had a busy campaign for Mark Johnston but has retained his form like so many of the stable's runners. He has won twice on Polytrack in the past and though on his highest-ever mark he probably has enough in the locker to gain another success. Having won twice at Hamilton in the summer, Belle Noverre should have no problems with today's track though she's now 7lbs higher than for her latest success on the Scottish course.
