Bosham can run from a 3lb lower mark despite producing easily his best run so far at Yarmouth last week after and will be very difficult to keep out of the frame. Blue Twister showed that there should be races to be won with him when reappearing in a Newbury maiden and he makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark. BLESSING BOX reappeared after a long absence to finish a close second behind Alhaarth Beauty at Yarmouth when well supported. He should be better for that run and is taken to recoup losses. Fantasy Invader showed a bit of promise on a couple of occasions last summer and is the type to do better this term so is rated a big threat.
