Rocket Rodney was only headed inside the final furlong when runner-up at Nottingham and that experience will stand him in good stead on this track but a couple of the newcomers catch the eye on breeding. Revenite is by sprinter Harry Angel and a half-brother to two winners and SHOULDVEBEENARING is a half-brother to a 6f winner and Richard Hannon’s youngsters usually know what’s required.
