Busmans looks a likely lad.

BUSMANS LAD (8.01) hasn't been punter-friendly since stepping up to A6, but Maxine Locke's youngster is threatening to get to grips with life here and is poised to repay the faithful at Romford tonight, writes Tony Bullen.

Open to any amount of improvement, Busmans Lad can beat Stradeen Mojo and Paradisus Gold to the punch on the dash to the first bend. It will be disappointing if he fails to put the race to bed under such circumstances.

Highview Dilemma (10.08) has enjoyed mixed fortunes in four starts to date on home soil over the standard 400m trip, but the manner of his two wins suggest he is a useful addition to the Gaskin camp. A recent workout at Oxford indicates all is well and a half-decent exit should see him home.

Barnagrane Mark (10.24) doesn't face an easy task in what is a hotly contested A1 event over 400m, but he doesn't have to contend with the likes of Droopys Cruyff tonight.

He has posted some slick times over C&D and his recent sprint trial at Hove suggests he is going to make a bold bid for glory clad in the 'pinging' white vest.

Sams Our Dog (7.30) can give the punters plenty of ammunition by opening his account in the opening A8 contest.

The March 2009 son of Ace Hi Rumble has improved each time he has gone to the boxes and a success should be imminent if he does manage to continue that trend.

Trap three inspired a fast exit on his second start and a similar exit should see him with matters in hand by the third bend.

A drop in class failed to have the desired effect latest with Gotta Get High (8.17), but Dave Mullins dog is worth giving another chance to end the lean spell.
