Decent Lord has the past form to figure if lasting home while Heezagrey has enjoyed something of a revival lately over hurdles and fences and can compete off the same mark as when second to Always Bold over 3m3f at Fontwell earlier this month. ROCKY RYAN has only had two runs since 2009 and was pulled up in the latest of those at Plumpton in April. But Jim Best can certainly get his charges ready at home and it may be significant that Tom Scudamore has been booked for yet another comeback. In a very modest affair, the nine-year-old gets the nod. Free Falling may be the pick of the remainder.
