The going will dictate what is a good draw on the straight course today but much of the pace in this appears to be among the low numbers with ROKER PARK likely to go well from stall one. He's been gradually getting his act together this year and was only beaten half-a-length at Ayr two weeks ago. Towbee finished just ahead of him on soft ground at Catterick earlier but is a couple of pounds worse and, while Right Touch is another threatening to rediscover his best form, he may need further help from the handicapper. Pontefract winner Showboating is also drawn low while Angelito and unexposed Brighton scorer Pastureyes may do best of those starting near the stands' rail.
