JOHNNY OWEN bolted up at Southwell on Wednesday and a 7lb penalty is unlikely to prevent a follow-up here if he's in the same mood. Realisation has been placed in four of his five starts but is tried in blinkers after a visor had no effect at Fakenham last time, while Echo Dancer is thoroughly exposed. Sendinpost has had her problems but should be better for her reappearance at Warwick and Cruise In Style was still in touch when unseating his rider at Wincanton last time. The latter pair appeal most of the remainder.
