A few of these have decent claims including Fossa. He's up 6lb after winning with a bit in hand over track and trip last month while Malaysian Boleh is 7lb higher than when scoring here on his penultimate start. Gabrial The Boss may be a shade high in the weights at present but LIVING THE LIFE was beaten only a head off today's mark over course and distance last week and gets the nod. Zain Spirit could prove best of the remainder after a better effort at Kempton last time.
