Both Wordismybond and Bassett Road will need to be quickly away from their outside berths to take up their usual prominent positions. Preference is for RONDEAU, who may finally come good having started this season on a 13lb higher mark. Lastkingofscotland and Annes Rocket are both course winners who have also tumbled down the weights of late while One Way Or Another is capable of popping up off his current mark. Homeboy is back on a winning mark and could prove best of the rest.
