ROWLESTONE LAD won a novice event at Market Rasen in the spring and though fading away quicky on his return at Bangor that was better than this and he's taken to return to winning ways. The three-year-old Rano Pano easily won a Ludlow seller last time and is an obvious threat while Ghaabesh has been racing at a slightly higher level since landing a Bangor seller in May. Wom has a chance on his latest close second at Fakenham in a trickier than usual seller.
