BOSAMBO has gone up 8lb in the weights after running out a clear winner over a mile here last month. Alan Swinbank's charge looked good value for more than the official winning margin of four lengths and can follow-up. Falmouth Bay has to come into the reckoning on his second to Amwell Pinot in March, while Maverik scored at Newcastle on his seasonal debut and there looks more to come from him. Tro Nesa can do better here with a recent run under her belt, but Maggie Mey looks high enough in the weights on her return.
