BOONGA ROOGETA stepped up a couple of grades when scoring at Newmarket last Friday and is clearly ahead of the handicapper. She has a penalty to defy today but that shouldn't stop her making it four in a row back at this level. Barton Bounty scored at this track last month and went close again off today's mark at Kempton last time while The Wonga Coup remains in good form and should be in the firing-line again. Brown Pete is 3lb lower than when scoring at Yarmouth in July and could prove best of the remainder.
