Purple 'n Gold burnt plenty of fingers at Newmarket when sent off as an odds-on favourite for a similar contest, and while he is clear of these rivals on official ratings, he's sure to be put in at cramped odds again. Frederickthegreat was tailed off on heavy going at Chester so it could be worth a speculative interest about BAILEYS OVER ICE. James Given's filly drops into plating company for the first time but she ran respectably enough in a maiden at the course last year, and her Beverley effort suggests that she will probably stay this far. Remember Rocky won a handicap at Chepstow on a similar surface though confidence for him has been somewhat dented by a dismal display at Leicester last month.
