Stinky Socks went backwards at Ascot last time having gone close at Bath on her debut. She steps up in trip as does last month's Yarmouth third Rockaroundtheclock, who finished a couple of lengths ahead of Spring Loaded on that occasion. STATE OF THE UNION was allowed to come home in his own time once his chance had gone at Newmarket. He'll have come on for that experience and the Hannon colt gets the vote with the newcomers making no appeal.
