Verdict

Affair won at Chelmsford last month and Angus Villiers takes off 5lb again but she struggles to stay this far. ROCKLIFFE’s record on the Flat reads 1-35 but he has won around here over hurdles and is a strong stayer who is getting weight from some very modest performers. Calevade wasn’t beaten far at Pontefract last month and looks the danger.
