BOSS'S DESTINATION has been in good form at Southwell recently and had Bedouin Bay back in third when scoring over 2m on the Fibresand last time. He's taken to carry over that form to the turf and gets the nod to follow up. Damascus Symphony showed progressive form over shorter trips in soft ground last term and can figure on her comeback if lasting home while Russian George went close to ending a long losing run when second at Kempton last time. Rosewin scored twice at Catterick last year but on quick ground and Sohcahtoa hasn't won since 2008, though he's been placed over today's trip since on more than one occasion.
