Rocket to blast a trail

Rusty Rocket looks nicely weighted

Sticking with the “horses for courses” formula could also pay dividends in the 5f handicap run at the end of the meeting (8.30pm). The Paul Green-trained RUSTY ROCKET has twice won around here (albeit over 7f) and he too looks to be on a good mark after a spell in the wilderness. The six-year-old was racing off 85 when chasing home the now 104-rated Aetna over this trip at Newcastle last April, yet lines up this evening off a 10lb lower mark. The rain has come at the right time for him too – his last six wins have come on easy ground – and just for good measure his stable is in good form, with the trainer’s four runners finishing 1182.
