The majority of these have been struggling to get their head in front but Roving Bunny won a Carlisle nursery over 7f last month off a 9lb lower mark and is preferred to plater Cascadia. Arrowzone, Island Remede, Larsen Bay and Acquaint have all been knocking on the door and the latter looks a better bet than stablemate Habdab but My Anchor disappointed over 1m2f at Bath last time and Poetic Choice was still beaten eight lengths when second at Newcastle. GOLD CLASS stepped up on previous efforts when third at Beverley. The extra furlong here is in his favour and, fairly treated on his handicap bow, he gets a tentative vote as Emaad may struggle to carry his big weight through the soft ground.
