Several of these arrive at the top of their game. Bosham won nicely at Catterick and is raised 5lb but ROYAL BRAVE comes out better on collateral form having landed a hat-trick with a recent success at Ayr. Both earlier wins came over track and trip and Rebecca Bastiman’s charge should make another bold bid off a 2lb higher mark. Longroom is upped in class and has a 13lb hike in the weights to contend with as he bids for a treble but Economic Crisis and Lexington Place are back on winning marks and have both been successful over course and distance in the past.
