Black Cow has his sights lowered but doesn't look a certain stayer on the evidence so far. The Snappy Poet may be capable of better but KALMBEFORETHESTORM easily has the best form. He's been placed in three of four previous starts around here and was third over this trip at Wincanton in April before his latest fourth over 3m at Exeter. Penzflo makes her debut over Rules but has been placed in a point-to-point and may have more scope than course and distance third The Sweetener.
