ROSIE'S LADY carries a penalty for last week's win over a mile at this track. She has something to prove over this longer distance but still gets the vote to follow-up given the weakness of the opposition. Littledown Rock is still searching for his first win but finished closer when fourth here last time and Spring Secret's recent five length defeat at Southwell was his best effort for some time. Hector Spectre, Waldsee and Bygones For Coins have the past form if going back far enough.
