Always Like This, Dead Cool and Grand Piano all have past form that gives them a chance, but they're not guaranteed to produce it and TROJAN ROCKET is more consistent. He's been in fine form of late with a couple of wins at Wolverhampton and the three-year-old may not have finished improving yet. Tislaam should do better back at this track but has yet to win over 7f, though C&D winner Mambo Spirit scored over a shorter trip here three weeks ago and should be thereabouts. Leadenhall Lass and Russian Ice are others to consider.
