Sweeping Rock bids to follow up a first victory at Bath three weeks ago but will find this tougher off an 8lb higher mark. POSTE RESTANTE makes more appeal as she's struck up a good understanding with 7lb claimer Lewis Walsh. The partnership was only beaten a length at Brighton last time having scored earlier at Yarmouth. Rowlestone Lass has been knocking on the door but is still a maiden and continues to creep up the weights, though she holds Surprise Us on Chepstow running early last month. Grayswood has been taking on slightly better company but has got nowhere near so far this year.
