It's taken Spacious' full sister Capacious a while to find her feet but she was arguably a shade unfortunate not to get off the mark in a maiden here last month. She has bags of scope and could easily find the necessary improvement to land this. But we're loathe to desert TIS ROCK'N' ROLL, who is turning into a real Polytrack specialist and is turned out again quickly after winning over C&D on Friday. A penalty won't make life easy but David Lanigan's colt may well have needed that run, his first since July, and could have more to offer. Sarmatian Knight was fourth in Friday's race but is another who should have benefited from the outing while Brimstone Hill returned to winning ways over C&D earlier this month. Thecornishcowboy is upped in grade but could also give a good account, though Alkadi would be a bigger danger is recapturing his best.
