BOLD RAIDER managed to make light of a four-month absence when successful at Newton Abbot and with the handicapper likely to take a dim view of that success; we'll stick with him under a winner's penalty. Mick Sowersby has two recent winners in opposition and both attempt a repeat before the assessor strikes. Carmela Maria isn't the soundest at home but she does not lack for determination and any rain would suit. Moon Melody caught the handicapper cold off a mark of 68, and having previously campaigned off marks in the 80's, he could still be well treated. Long Wave is yet to win under Rules though he did win a maiden between the flags for previous connections. Chosen Dream finished second at Worcester in a novices' handicap and Jonjo O'Neill reapplies the cheekpieces that he had worn previously. Award Winner is able though increasingly unreliable while Vote For Doodle hasn't been the easiest to train but Liam Corcoran's charge was a regular winner in point-to-points a couple of seasons ago.
