THAT'S NOT ME had some smart form on Turf and had been threatening to win for some time before getting off the mark over 6f here last month. She broke well and made all so dropping back to the minimum won't be a problem. Hell Left Loose was almost eight lengths behind and looked as though he needed further. Associate Rock was beaten in a Ripon seller when last seen in July but Annabelle Rock ran well on her handicap debut here last month and there could be more to come. Fairy Fast is out of a maiden hurdler from a very speedy family and may prove best of the newcomers.
