FREMEN is getting a bit long in the tooth nowadays but he's proved himself a potent force at this level down the years and finished a long way in front of the disappointing Just Five when successful at Newcastle last month. Second in a claimer at Ffos Las subsequently, it would be no surprise to see the old boy add to his tally of 20 career wins as most of his rivals appear out of form. An exception is Unlimited, who won twice on the all-weather in the spring. Jasmin Rai has a lot to find at the weights could conceivably run into a place back over her best trip.
