Connections of LE ROCHER will have been doing their rain dance for the last week and to good effect. Conditions are going to suit their horse perfectly, the heavier the better for him. He was a Grade 1 winner in his youth, showing signs in the last year that there still remains an awful lot of ability. He looks massively overpriced. Any Second Now could be thrown in on his Graded novice form so far this season, taking on the likes of Footpad and Monalee, he rates the biggest danger. Mister Whittaker looks a big player having snuck in at the bottom of the weights, while both Barney Dwan and Livelovelaugh needs respect.
