Timeform take you through the card at Kelso on Sunday...
"He was 12 lb superior to his only rival over hurdles on Timeform ratings, the pair having their first starts over fences."
Timeform on Rocky's Treasure
14:20 - Disappointing to see just two take their chance, but ROCKY'S TREASURE (2) should have the measure of Judge Earle if ready to go on return for his in-form yard. He was 12 lb superior to his only rival over hurdles on Timeform ratings, the pair having their first starts over fences.
14:50 - STRONG TEAM (6) took it up another notch when recording his second win at Hexham last month, staying on well to lead on the run-in, and, given the manner of that victory and the fact that he's clearly thriving on his racing at the moment, further success beckons from 6 lb higher. Man Look and Nendrum are feared most.
15:25 - NOAH AND THE ARK (1) confirmed the promise of his Bangor run when running out an impressive winner at Stratford last month, and with further improvement forthcoming, he can follow up. Rock N Rolla is entitled to build on his hurdling debut and may prove the main threat. Justadreamyeken should also have a future over jumps, particularly once tackling longer trips.
15:55 - Four runners are due to take their chance here, but, all things being equal, this will boil down to a straight fight between BLUNDER BUSS (2) and Aye Right. Marginal preference is for the former, who got off the mark in handicap company at Musselburgh when last seen in March, and he can prove too sharp switched back to novice company.
16:25 - The tremendously likeable SIMPLY NED (1) is heading into the twilight of his career now, but he is a standing dish in this race and he's selected to make light of clear top weight and land it for a third time. Nuts Well hasn't been since winning at Carlisle last November but it still wouldn't be a surprise if he was the one to give Nicky Richards' charge most to think about.
16:55 - ROMULUS DU DONJON (1) has dropped to good mark on his return from a break and is fancied to exploit it in this company. Cool Valley and Sulamani The Late (needs forgiving a temperamental display at Hexham on Friday) are feared most.
17:25 - GREEN ZONE (6) is back in top form and can follow up his Perth win raised 6 lb. Boogie Life is weighted to strike again and is feared. Samtu is one of several lurking on good marks for when staging a revival.
