Rise To Glory scored over track and trip in March but has failed to figure off higher marks in a couple of subsequent starts. A speculative vote goes the way of BASSETT ROAD in this as he won off his current mark on the Polytrack earlier this year and is dropped in class after his latest fourth at Catterick. Drive Home also finished fourth at the same track last time and Rutterkin posted a better effort at Wolverhampton on his latest start, while Just The Tonic made the frame here in September.
