Myboyalfie carries a penalty for his success at Warwick on Thursday. He should go well again but BOLD PREDICTION makes more appeal. The latter has a couple of recent outings under his belt and won off today's mark in better company at Ayr last season. My Single Malt is 9lb higher than when winning here last month so Conor Beasley's allowance will help his cause but Goldstream will likely benefit for today's first start since August.
