FOREST EDGE makes a quick reappearance under a penalty having made all to land a double over 6f earlier this month. Adam Kirby could afford to ease him down in the closing stages at Wolverhampton last Saturday and a hat trick looks on the cards here. Rocket Rob and Roy's Legacy both won their latest outings but face tougher opposition in this while Moorhouse Lad is looking to take revenge on better terms with recent Lingfield winner Bubbly Ballerina. Ring For Baileys remains in good form and is another with claims.
