ACCRA BEACH never looked like getting to the odds-on Heartbreak Hero at Windsor having missed the break. But that was a very promising first run from Roger Charlton's colt considering he'll need further in time. He should get off the mark here, though may not be much of a price. Chevallier and Galago are probable improvers while newcomers Finton Friend and Imperial Link are worth a market check.
