MIGHTY MOBB made a very promising debut over fences behind Chicklemix at Towcester last month and the winner has scored again since. Philip Hobbs' charge was having his first start since April and with the experience under his belt looks ready to gain his first success. Carrigeen Kariega travels over from Tipperary and could hardly be in better form after an impressive victory on heavy going at Thurles though he wouldn't want the ground to quicken up. Arc Warrior pulled up in nine of his first 12 starts and was banned for a while but he's suddenly found some form and loved the testing conditions when scoring at Ayr. He's up 9lb but is still on a lowly mark. The Magic Bishop doesn't win often but is 4lb lower than his last winning mark and ran well for a long way at Musselburgh last time.
