DANNIOS doesn't stand much racing but it's impossible to knock his unblemished record here and Noel Garbutt again takes off 7lb. Ed Walker's four-year-old can get the better of Shena's Dream, who just held off Feelthedifference over C&D last time and is 3lb higher now, and Kempton maiden winner Alraased. Patriotic has a penalty to carry for winning a charity race for retired jockeys at Doncaster last week and Chris Dwyer also runs course specialist Rough Rock, though he is probably better over 7f. Barwick may have too much weight now and it's difficult to recommend either Ruby Night or Falcon In Flight on what they showed last time.
