HIGH TIME TOO has shown ability on a variety of surfaces and if handling tonight's fast ground can finally get off the mark in a moderate contest. Peter's Friend has been competing in poor events, mainly on the all-weather, and has plenty of weight for what he's achieved but Qibtee has been fading over 1m4f so this trip should suit on his handicap debut. Arlecchino had shown a bit of promise at this trip before a very poor effort over further at Ripon.
