Beyond has won on the Flat since last appearing over timber and is likely to be among the market leaders for this. Dark Spirit is another who has been going well on the level and she doesn't look badly treated while Emily's Flyer was third in a novice event over course and distance earlier this month. But Raktiman only won a seller at Southwell last month and the handicapper has raised Coronea Lilly 5lb for a recent second over track and trip. MISSION COMPLETE was racing over hurdles for the first time in 15 months when a close second to Man Of Leisure at Worcester. A similar performance should see him home in front this evening.
