It's difficult to be confident about any of these and only a tentative vote goes to BOWSTAR. He has the best form in the book despite being turned over when favourite for a similar contest over C&D last week. Marshall Art posted his best effort so far when beaten five lengths in third last time but the remainder have yet to show any worthwhile form. Garrisson and Fly Haaf look most likely to improve as they return from lay-offs though Willow Beauty managed to get within three lengths of the winner at Folkstone back in May.
