After back-to-back wins at Lingfield and over today's C&D, Spin Again will be fancied to complete the hat-trick as he's won off higher marks than today's in the past. ROUGH ROCK reserves his best for the track, however, and came right back to form over 1m at Newmarket last Friday. The drop in distance won't be a problem and, as that was an apprentices' race, he has avoided a penalty here. Chris Dwyer's charge is the one to beat. First Class could figure off bottom weight while Comrade Bond is a consistent sort but gets little respite from the handicapper as a result. Primo Lady has a chance at the weights and is preferred to Proper Charlie and the frustrating Links Drive Lady of the others.
