Peter Bowen does well here but runs three in this contest which doesn't make things any easier for the punter. Vinnie My Boy looks best of the trio whilst Decoy is tumbling down the weights after a series of inglorious efforts. The Pipe inmate would be the one to watch if recapturing his form, whilst the out-of-touch Tiger O'Toole is another in search of something like his best. Expect there to be more to come from the unexposed O'Neill contender Vermouth Bleu but the one in form is DAVERON. Jeremy Scott's inmate looked like he still had more to come when scoring under today's conditional just eight days ago and looks on the upgrade. He can supplement those gains here.
