Webbow is trying hard to end a long losing run but keeps coming up short and George Guru looked in the handicapper's grip before popping-up at Kempton last time. He beat the disappointing Grey Mirage with EMBANKMENT tailed off last after missing the break. The latter had landed a double before that and with plenty of scope for further progress and Seb Sanders taking over the reins, he gets another chance here. Lockantanks is a tough customer and not easily overlooked but Hometown Glory is upped in the weights and in class after scoring over C&D last time.
