FALCARRAGH made hard work of beating modest rivals at Worcester earlier this week and has more to do here under a double penalty. But we'll stick with Tim Vaughan's charge as The Finger Post has left Tony Martin's yard since scoring at Downpatrick in July and Native Colony fell heavily at Stratford last month and was beaten at a lower level at that course on his previous start. The other pair are best watched until showing worthwhile form.
