ZOWINGTON is well-handicapped and gets the vote here ahead of recent winners Love You Louis and Master Lightfoot, with Handsome Cross also considered a major player. The Stuart Williams-trained selection makes his seasonal reappearance this afternoon and looks fairly handicapped. He goes on any ground so wont mind what the weather does in the build up to the meeting. Cerito should strip fitter for his run at Wolverhampton last month, Sharpened Edge is better than she was able to show at Ascot in October, whilst Taurus Twins has talent but is probably high enough in the weights now. Love You Louis landed a gamble when winning on April Fools' Day and is considered despite a whopping 10lb rise, Timeteam looks nicely handicapped now, whilst Master Lightfoot and Handsome Cross clashed last time and there was very little between them at the line. Magical Speedfit doesn't look the easiest of rides but he is capable of winning off this mark, whilst Ginobli has a nice pull in the weights with Love You Louis and looks a contender off bottom weight with Martin Dwyer in the saddle. A trappy sprint handicap, but preference is for top-weight Zowington.
