39-11OR: 63CD
11/10

Brought his Southwell record to 2-3 when beating Esprit De Corps by ¾L last week; no obvious reason as to why he shouldn't go mightily close to winning again under a 6lb penalty.

Course regular; 8lb higher than when winning by 5L on his penultimate start (1m); kept on well when finishing 3½L fifth of 14 to Makambe here 12 days ago, so the drop back to 7f represents a slight concern.

Both of his AW wins have come on Tapeta (Newcastle and Wolverhampton) but crucially he does also handle this surface; 2lb lower than when finishing 7L third to John Kirkup at Ayr (6f, soft) a fortnight ago.

Seems to appreciate testing conditions (was placed in a 5f novice here in August 2018); well below peak form on her last couple of starts; must bounce back swiftly on return from an 86-day break in order to figure positively.

Made all when easily winning a 7f Lingfield nursery for Brendan Powell last December; twice placed on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (6f) since joining Mark Usher; makes his first competitive start for 107 days; others more appealing.

Finished off strongly when runner-up to Requited in a 6f Class 6 course handicap 12 days ago; also has winning C&D form on his CV (from a similar mark); is expected to have a major say now upped in trip to 7f.

Runner-up to stablemate Vallarta (runs earlier at 5.25pm) on heavy ground at Hamilton (6f) 16 days ago; has limited experience of racing on Fibresand and is a 10-race AW maiden overall.

11-race maiden with hardly a single noteworthy effort on his CV; tailed off over 6f here recently; impossible to consider.

17-race maiden; has shown just a glimmer of ability on this surface in the past (7f); was always towards the rear when in-behind (seventh) today's rival Bee Machine over 6f here 12 days ago; it's very difficult to see that form being reversed.

Betting

Forecast

Awa Bomba (11/10), Muqarred (4/1), Bee Machine (9/2), Amazing Grazing (9/1), Freedom And Wheat (16/1), Epona (16/1), Cosmic Chatter (25/1), The Gingerbreadman (33/1), Bevsboy (100/1)

Verdict

Awa Bomba clearly thrives on Fibresand (2-3) and there's no obvious reason as to why he shouldn't go mightily close to winning again under a 6lb penalty for last week's C&D win. However, with the potential for a slightly more rewarding price we'll bravely elect to oppose with the Declan Carroll-trained BEE MACHINE. This C&D scorer (August 2018) sits near enough his last winning mark, demonstrably goes well for the 7lb claimer Zak Wheatley and was spotted finishing off strongly (second) over 6f here earlier this month.
