CHOC'A'MOCA ran well to finish second on his comeback at Catterick and looks set for a return to winning ways. He finished ahead of Dartrix and several others in today's field and the latter had earlier beaten Code Six at Newcastle. Paul Midgley's charge gets the nod as Weetentherty is having his first start since scoring at Musselburgh in October when Distant Sun was back in fifth. Two Turtle Doves has the past form to figure if back to her best today.
