Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - ROCKY'S PRIDE did this observer a big favour in the past, when scoring here on the second occasion back in February, and he's of definite interest again now. Fair enough, some might say that the handicapper has the six-year-old in his grasp at this stage, and there is also the question mark of him going up to a mile and a quarter. However, on the plus side he shouldn't have any problem going from the front, as he likes, from stall one, and he'll surely come on from his run last week – his first since April. The Rock Of Gibraltar gelding is fancied to make a bold bid to make every post a winning one and indeed he has decent form over longer distances in the past. Others of interest are Emotional Dream, having her first go on the surface and Heavy Weight. He surely has more scope for progression as a three-year-old.
