BONOMAN arrives in the best form and gets the vote on that basis. He scored over a shorter trip here earlier this month beating Anay Turge six lengths and should be able to shrug off a penalty. Forever My Friend makes a quick reappearance after falling at Folkestone on Tuesday but the ground is a worry for him while Rash Moment has gone off the boil a little since recording a string of placed efforts in October. Himayna and Turbulance are harder to fancy and overlooked on this occasion.
