MOWHOOB (best price 3-1)
ran a good deal better than the final finishing position suggest at Beverley last time out and he can go well in what looks an atrocious race. Dropped in by design from his coffin box high draw, Dandy Nicholls’ inmate found himself detached from the main pack as the field rounded into the home straight at the Yorkshire venue, but it was this point onwards where things really began to develop. Running on with great gusto from the three furlong pole, the son of Medicean was about to launch what looked a potent challenge when he found a wall of horses dropping back into his lap and he was forced to come home in his own time once his winning chance had gone. Whether he would have won is anyone’s guess but his did finish full of running, so there’s every chance he can build on that unlucky effort and be competitive off his current mark.
