This is a highly competitive six furlong handicap but the three-year old joint top weight BLACKBURN ROC is progressive and should make his presence felt. The Drier inmate had an excusable last run in strong company on the grass but produced quality form on this surface prior to that, including going close under a bigger mass on handicap debut over this c & d in his penultimate effort. He could enjoy being equipped with blinkers today. SOLID GOLD has his quirks but is clearly above average and the lightly raced chestnut should build on his promising post maiden comeback run two weeks ago. He does seem well-handicapped on his handicap and polytrack debut and is definitely worth following. His stablemate LUPO is undoubtedly even better handicapped thanks largely to the 4kgs apprentice allowance and this c & d specialist should be closely watched. That said, the big worry could be the lack of many speedsters which means that the likely dictator HECTOR HEATHCOTE may enjoy a soft lead on his most successful surface.
