Keith Dalgleish rarely wastes a trip here from his south Lanarkshire base and ARAGORN ROUGE went very close over track and trip six days ago when only beaten a neck by Ensnare. Adam Carter takes off a valuable 5lb today and the four-year-old, who has the beating of Community on the form book, can go one better. Dandarrell is on a hat-trick after following up here earlier this month after scoring at Newcastle. He should be thereabouts again and Archina is better than he showed here three weeks ago, though has a lot to find to overturn that form with lightly-raced winner Tatting. Mountrath is starting to look well handicapped but has become disappointing.
