Verdict

FRIENDS DON'T ASK predictably found it tough going from a long way out of the handicap in the Eider but had been pretty consistent at this sort of level prior to that and this looks a good opportunity for him to notch a second win. Acaro has reached the frame over shorter trips here in recent months and can give Martin Smith's charge most to think about.
