WOOP WOOP has thrived since changing yards and landed a hat-trick for Ian Williams when scoring over C&D last week. He can defy a 6lb penalty in his current mood. Rose Aurora finally opened her account at Kempton last time but is 10lb higher for her troubles, while there's not much between Rodrigo De Freitas and Formidable Guest after they finished second and third respectively over C&D recently. Bennelong finds it impossible to run the same race twice but is due a good run today and has every chance if in the mood.
