THECORNISHCOWBOY is back on a winning mark and showed signs of a resurgence when runner-up at Lingfield a week ago. A similar effort should see him bang there at the finish. Time Square also went close on the Polytrack last time and he can figure along with Wolverhampton winner He's No Angel. The ground looks to have gone against City Ground, but both Roger Thorpe and Stun Gun may get involved having won maiden races at Southwell recently. Zafranagar won this in 2012 and can race off a lower mark today.
