Ginger Grey's form has gone to pot since winning his maiden at Catterick in December and Bocamix is similar in that he failed to figure at Market Rasen last time having won over C&D before that. MUJAMEAD has been holding his form better as he was winning for the third time this year when landing a conditionals race under today's rider at Warwick last week with the re-opposing Marju King back in third and he looks the one to side with here. Avanos won at Market Rasen when last seen on the track but that was back in 2010.
