Parisian Pyramid shows no sign of halting his slide while Bathwick Bear struggles to get his head in front but it's too soon to write off three-year-olds Orders From Rome and O'Gorman. Oh So Spicy might struggle on the heavy ground, however, while veteran Efistorm does most of his winning at a lower level nowadays. Cardinal may be better over a stiff 5f but Forks stays further than this and wouldn't be far away if running up to his best. JOCASTA DAWN is one of the few who is guaranteed to act on the surface and she beat Orders From Rome over C&D in the summer. The ground was too quick for Henry Candy's filly last time and she can bounce back here. Rafaaf also warrants a second look on his form in the mud in the spring and he showed a bit more at Warwick last time.
