Occasionally Yours was backed into favouritism over 3m at Fakenham last time but never looked like threatening easy winner Big Time Billy. The drop in distance should suit, however, while Farbreaga has already enjoyed a successful season though, like The Mumper and course and distance winner Murcar, probably has his fair share of weight at present. INVICTA LAKE had last month's Taunton second Sun Quest behind when winning here in December and wasn't beaten far when fourth at Plumpton 10 days ago. Suzy Smith's charge is fancied to get back to winning ways today as Award Winner goes best for McCoy. Star Of Massini was only beaten a nose at Kempton two runs ago but didn't run up to that form at Plumpton.
