KENNY POWERS finished second to Gusto in Listed company at Lingfield back in March. He won't have to run up to that level to open his account on his comeback and will start a very short price in this company. Green Mitas and Premier Choice are closely matched on official ratings although the former is just preferred on his recent second over C&D and Lingfield third Ifan looks clear of the rest who have shown nothing so far.
