The promising Sean Bowen is starting to get a few outside bookings and is riding winners. He has a good chance here on board BOWIE for Nick Kent. The seven-year-old has yet to run a bad race around here and is only 3lb higher than when winning over a slightly shorter trip on the course last month. Listen And Learn stays well and appears to be running into form, though has ground to make up on course and distance winner Master Of The Hall on their run together at the track in May. Renegotiate and Snowed In may have stamina issues, however, and Scotsbrook Cloud looks better handicapped though stays a lot further than this.
