FOUNDRY SQUARE, an excellent second at Cheltenham at the end of last month and a winner at Ludlow earlier, can give the weight away to Rossmore Lad who is consistent enough between the flags but possibly lacks the class of the selection. Rear Gunner is enjoying an Indian summer so can't be ignored but Rose Grissell's mare will have to be at her best to figure here, though is still preferred to Captain Crackers and the disappointing Owner Occupier.
