No favourite has been successful in seven renewals and this looks trickier than ever. ROCKET ROB can always be relied on to do his best around here and has won three times on the track. He almost made it four when runner-up to today's rival Tagula Night in April and can turn the tables on the winner at the revised weights. Lupo D'Oro ran well from a poor draw that day but just looks a couple of pounds high at present. The consistent Rylee Mooch has to enter the reckoning and like the in-form Monsieur Jamie he has a low draw to help. Jarrow is 3lb lower than when scoring here in September so he's another to enter calculations.
