Most of these have recorded only modest efforts to date and so a chance is taken on the newcomer TOO FRISKY. He's a half-brother to six winners and won't need to be anything out of the ordinary to land this. Mbhali finished just ahead of Here For Good when fifth at Wolverhampton while Final Countdown never looked like catching the winner when runner-up at the same track last month. War Of Art and Anjin may improve for the longer trip but Third Strike moves in the opposite direction as he failed to see out 1m2f at this track a couple of weeks ago.
