ZOWINGTON has been hammering on the door in his last few starts and it could finally swing open for him again in this handicap as he seems to marginally have most in his favour but we expect strong challenges from Wotashirtful and My Kingdom. Having found just one too good by less than a length on each of his last two starts the pick is certainly running well despite rising marks. He's up another pound here but will be suited by the ground and given he's won at this venue in the past he has know problems with the track. Wotashirtful is probably better on the all-weather tracks and while the conditions look a little quick for him on is return to turf he is off a competitive mark. My Kingdom would also like some more cut in the ground but after an easy victory last time shouldn't be ignored. Rocker is another for the shortlist with Gary Moore's gelding having scored on his only visit here but with that one yet to win over this trip, Zowington has to get the verdict.
