A tight contest though Loving Glance only won a novices' event here a fortnight ago and Boy In The Bar is preferred having scored in this grade at Chelmsford. Typhoon Ten also has leading claims with an apprentice’s allowance negating a penalty for winning at Lingfield. MOHAREB steps up in trip having landed a double over 6f but he’s gone close over today’s extra furlong before and Mick Appleby’s charge is fancied to continue winning ways having won with plenty in hand last time. Tukhoom wasn’t beaten far in a claimer here a week ago and Kodiac Pride is worth noting debuting for a new yard on his return from a lay-off.
