J: Sean Bowen

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.

Consistent with a good completion record; last April's Chepstow win came after four months off so absence since October no great concern; best form has been achieved on ground quicker than he'll meet here, however.
