Roskilly stayed well enough when stepped up to today's distance on his reappearance. He found a couple too good on that occasion but should be in the mix once again. EL NAJIMM was beaten only a length at Haydock in September and a couple of subsequent winners have come out of the race. Roger Varian's Sea The Stars colt gets the nod on his return. Rookery failed to beat a rival on his debut at Brighton last year and the newcomers Moonrise Landing and Carnt Cash Sorry make more appeal, especially if supported in the betting.
