EVER FORTUNE ran well over 1m2f at Epsom last time but ended last year with a victory over today's trip at Yarmouth. It was testing going on that occasion but all ground comes alike to Rae Guest's charge and he gets the nod. Sir Mike failed to cope with a 4lb rise after scoring on the Polytrack in May though he's slipped back down the weights since while Wilfred Pickles looks no nearer to ending his barren spell off his current mark. Jamaica Grande landed a maiden handicap at Yarmouth last time but will find this more competitive.
