Sound Advice won easily at Newcastle last month but couldn't follow up at Carlisle and is probably a few pounds too high now. All of Flynn's Boy's victories have come over this trip and he was a good second over 6f last time while Rough Rock can never be ignored here, a point he proved by finishing second over course and distance 11 days ago. Azrael is running well and should be in the mix again but GREYFRIARSCHORISTA showed enough when fifth at Newmarket last month to suggest he's well treated at present and can land this for his in-form yard with Valdaw better over 6f.
