The Unit is the only one with an official rating and is progressing very well, defying mistakes to score here and at Doncaster. He has a 10lb penalty which makes life tougher and RAMSES DE TEILLEE may be the one to take advantage. David Pipe's winning point-to-pointer was returning from a long absence and found the minimum trip too short here last month and that should have put him spot-on for this. Cash Again won a bumper in France and though so far disappointing has plenty of time on his side. He may do better over further in time but The Groove, who cost 105,000gns as a yearling, is bred for the Flat so may be better suited by the quick ground than most.
