HOLD EM COWBOY hasn't won often enough with just two victories to his credit but he looks well enough in here to add another success to his tally after an excellent run behind Daytime Dreamer at Downpatrick. Mumgos Debut has had his last five starts here and hardly beaten a horse home while Call Box almost certainly wants softer ground than he's likely to get here. Bescot Springs runs the occasional good race but still looks to have plenty of weight.
