BOBOWEN won easily off this mark over fences at Market Rasen last week and Chris Ward takes off a valuable 8lb here. The ground is in his favour again and Richard Newland's charge can follow up. My Viking Bay is often thereabouts while this is a drop in grade for Kusadasi, though he's been a long way below his best lately. Catch The Fire's second at Ffos Las was a big improvement on earlier form while Market Rasen winner Avanos is carrying a penalty and has an alternative engagement at Southwell.
