MySQL Create Procedure - Access Denied

I've come across a few similar questions here, but have yet to figure out the answer.

I have a MySQL database that I connect to remotely (using Navicat) as the root user.

I'm trying to create a procedure using the following code (sent to me by a developer);

CREATE DEFINER=`root`@`localhost` PROCEDURE `webservice`.`Qry_WatchList`(_ProductId INT, _WebServiceId INT)
select WatchListId, WSProductId, Title, Description, Currency, Price
from tblwatchlist wl where wl.`ProductId`=_ProductId
and wl.`WebServiceId`=_WebServiceId ;
END $$

I'm getting 'access denied' messages for user root@ - and for life of me I can't figure out why.  I'm able to create databases, tables etc without any issues at all - but this simply will not execute at all.

I also tried;

CREATE PROCEDURE Qry_WatchList(_ProductId INT, _WebServiceId INT)
select WatchListId, WSProductId, Title, Description, Currency, Price
from tblwatchlist wl where wl.ProductId=_ProductId and wl.WebServiceId=_WebServiceId;

With the same result.

Any pointers very much appreciated!

the DEFINER is without the host name..
CREATE DEFINER=`root` PROCEDURE `webservice`.`Qry_WatchList`(_ProductId INT, _WebServiceId INT)
