Verdict

Rowan Road landed a double over longer trips in December but has a bit to prove off her current mark. Settledoutofcourt and Mini The Minx are preferred after recent placed efforts at this track but both have something to find with NOTONEBUTTWO. Chris Grant's charge was just held over a shorter trip here last month but an earlier win over 2m7f in testing ground at Kelso suggests he can return to winning ways in this. Candleford and Lord Friday arrive on the back of point-to-point victories and the latter makes most appeal of that pair but Ahhdehken looks held by the selection on recent running.
