Thecornishcowboy came up well short of landing a six-timer despite finishing second at Nottingham last time. This looks no easier and INCENDO is preferred. The latter ran well for fourth behind Expert Fighter in much better company here last week and should be bang there at the finish with a similar effort. Gang Warfare is another to consider making his handicap debut having gone close last time and it's also too soon to write off Tacticus despite disappointing on his latest outing.
