Chocolate Wildcat and Rocketringo will be keen to get on with things and are dangerous if getting loose, but BATTERED sets the form standard here and the course specialist could prove too strong for the speedsters.

Impressive maiden winner Dance For Ransom and Added Attraction can give him most to think about.
