Bobowen chases a hat trick for Richard Newland and with the six-year-old routing his field at Stratford by an easy 15 lengths, we can expect to see the bookmakers pricing accordingly. Alan Spence endured a near miss at Southwell this week, and the owner may just avail himself of some compensation with DANCING DUDE. Though something of an awkward ride, the five-year-old demonstrated plenty of aptitude with victories at Towcester and over C&D, but he showed precious little in two starts last winter and his campaign was quickly curtailed. If Nicky Henderson has cleared all ills - a fresh start could work wonders. Raajih appears to have shown improvement for the application of a tongue strap and he is respected in receipt of weight. Viking Ridge won his maiden over C&D and makes a quick reappearance but Mythical Warrior could be of more interest. Jonjo O'Neill's charge landed plenty of bets when posting a smart success in a Hereford maiden and there could be more to come.
