Rainbow Rock will be winning soon judged on his comeback third at Nottingham and Peacemaker made the frame at Bath last time. Wildcat Lass won a maiden contest over 6f here and Slinky McVelvet is preferred to Elysian Prince having landed a double over track and trip earlier. But John Gosden boasts an impressive strike rate with his runners on the Fibresand and given GRANDEST scored over 7f here in December, the latter may well prove the one to beat.
