The maiden Rowlestone Lass ran her best race so far when only beaten half-a-length over a longer trip at Nottingham. She must have a chance in a poor contest but we still fancy joint top weights ROYAL MARSKELL and Highlife Dancer to fight out the finish. The former is narrowly preferred as, even though he's yet to win on Turf, he went close on Polytrack off today's mark in the spring. The latter is still 5lb higher than when scoring over course and distance last month on soft going though does handle all types of surface. The other pair appear to have a bit to find on recent form.
Royal Marskell 8-1 (9-3) Mid-division, headway 3f out, ridden to chase leaders over 2f out, never on terms, weakened 1f out, 8th of 12, 11l behind Magicalmysterytour (8-3) at Nottingham 1m 6f hcp 0-70 (5) sft.
Highlife Dancer 8-1 (9-2) Took keen hold tracking leading pair, edged left and not quicken over 1f out, 4th and one pace inside final furlong, eased when held close home, 4th of 9, 3 1/2l behind Thecornishcowboy (9-13) at Windsor 1m 4f app hcp 0-70 (5) gd.
