Rocky Elsom is on a hat-trick after victories at Plumpton and Huntingdon but he's gone up 10lb since his latest success and that may be enough to halt his winning run. Claire Dyson has her string in good order and KHAZIUM wasn't winning out of turn at Ludlow. That was only a seller but he did have form at a higher level in the autumn and might be able to follow up here as gambled-on Hereford winner couldn't cope with a jump up the weights at Warwick in January. It's Oscar went close at Towcester in December and looks best of the rest.
