Not many of these can be recommended with any confidence. Thecornishcowboy is an exception as he had looked in the handicapper's grip before popping-up again at Lingfield last time. He's not easily overlooked but ACTIVATE is just preferred. The latter has been raised another 6lb for finishing second at Musselburgh last week but an apprentice's allowance negates most of that and Keith Dalgleish's charge has won off higher marks in the past. Southwell winner Mister Bob needs to improve to figure but has the scope to do so, while Come Here Yew makes most appeal of those returning to action.
