Boogangoo picked up a couple of plating races here early in the year but has been well beaten in handicaps since. Aramadyh should figure and wears her owners first colours ahead of Zamra. The latter has found a Mark Johnston runner too good on her last couple of outings and the trainer is represented by course and distance winner Power Up in this. Shimba Hills has been raised 7lb for his win at Nottingham in November and Rose Kazan is preferred as she goes handicapping for the first time. COLLABORATION also makes his handicap bow having won a maiden contest at Brighton last year and he gets the nod on his return for Andrew Balding's in-form yard.
