BUTNEY ROCK won a bumper over this trip at Gowran in June and is making steady progress over timber, only finding Bayan too good over 2m1f here last month. Denis O'Regan rides again and Colin McBratney's charge should make the most of the 7lb he receives from Sedgefield scorer Red Eyes. Rossini's Dancer is probably having a pipe-opener ahead of a return to fences but still looks the pick of the remainder.
