Pravda Street beat lower rated horses to win a seller here last month and Go Far steps up in trip having landed a 6f maiden at this track on his latest start. Tatting bids for hat-trick of course wins but it was close between him and the re-opposing No Win No Fee over track and trip last time with a below par Sofias Number One further behind. AQUA ARDENS has been holding his form well on the Polytrack but won his maiden on his only previous start at this venue and there may be more to come from him back on this surface. Our Ivor also has the form to go close but this is his first start since June.
