Reeling N' Rocking gets the call here ahead of Parkview Love and Mistral Sky. Much as Reeling N' Rocking was disappointing at Kempton last time, we are prepared to forgive him that for he had earlier looked progressive when winning at the same venue. He can go well. Parkview Love is now four pounds above a winniNg mark and has been beaten twice from a revised mark. However, a drop in trip might help the cause today. Many of the others have similar profiles and maybe have three or four pounds to find before they could have been given confident nominations so Mistral Sky, who has form enough to go well, might fare well today stepping up in trip frOm his most-recent efforts. The step up in trip from his most-recent efforts might also help Norcroft but for the selection we will stick with Reeling N' Rocking.
