Faraway's best form is good enough to land this despite the fact he was a well beaten favourite at Wolverhampton last time. He does have the beating of One More Roman on earlier form and the latter has since beaten The Dancing Lord and Tiablo in a claimer, but he will do well conceding so much weight to CHAPELLERIE. Brian Meehan's filly has been running well without threatening to win of late and looks set to take advantage of today's favourable terms. Finalist was not beaten far in a nursery at Kempton in November, but is another with plenty to find at the weights with the selection.
