ONE MORE ROMAN has been in decent form at Southwell of late but scored over today's trip at Wolverhampton in December and gets the token vote off a 5lb lower mark. Flying Kitty won over 6f here last month though she has something to prove over today's distance, while Auntie Kathryn has the past form to figure. Elusive Island, Vicgernic and Stormin Gordon are the least exposed and won't have to find much improvement to get involved in this company.
