Yammos had Beacon Lady and subsequent winner King Kenobi behind when scoring at Windsor last month, while Wolverhampton 6f winner Faraway has been drawn wide for his first start over a mile and has no easy task. It doesn't bode well that 30,000gns yearling Plead The Fifth makes his racecourse debut at this level and preference is for SNOWED IN. He's been running well over 1m2f this month, but today's drop back in trip is no problem as he scored over 7f at Wolverhampton in August. Stan Moore's charge gets the vote.
