I had a chat with the owner a couple of days ago about him and we’re keen to go all the way through to declaration stage and see what the ground is like,” said Cowell.
“He won’t show up if it’s good to firm ground, but he could show up if it’s good or softer.“I’d put a line through his Papin form. It wasn’t him and he scoped a little bit dirty when we brought him back.
