FRIENDS OF TINA is 10lbs higher in the weights since he broke his maiden tag here last month but is taken to defy it at the expense of Winged Arrow and Bob 'n' You. The selection steps up in trip two furlongs after winning here last time out. He won a shade easily that day and the handicapper has raised him accordingly. This race does not look much on paper and if he can recapture his recent form he will take all the beating. Winged Arrow is a frustrating horse to follow winning only once in twenty nine outings. He ran well enough when fourth of 16 at Huntington on his penultimate start but he was disappointing at this venue last time out. His jockey booking is a positive one so any market moves should be noted. Bob 'n' You comes from a yard that are having plenty of winners on the flat at present. He is still relatively unexposed with only six runs under his belt and could be potentially well handicapped as a result. This is a poor handicap that will not take much winning so for the winner we return to Friends of Tina.
