Veteran Fred Bojangals is better known as a chaser and only won a claimer over track and trip last month. He appears to have more on his plate today giving weight to younger rivals. The four-year-old Right To Rule won at Haydock last October but ran a shocker at Catterick on his only subsequent start in December. MOJOLIKA beat Yorkist by two lengths in a similar contest over course and distance 10 days ago. The runner-up is 3lb better off but Tim Easterby's charge appears to be on an upward curve and can confirm the form and double his tally. Tweedo Paradiso was second off this mark at Sedgefield on Friday but that form may not amount to much while Somerset Island and Takaatuf disappointed last time.
