Farhh is clearly difficult to train but has won his only two starts, both at Newmarket. Diverting and ROBEMAKER were both behind last October but the pair enjoy a 10lb turnaround in the weights today. The latter, who has winning form on soft ground, has had the benefit of a recent outing when meeting trouble in-running at Nottingham and can come out on top today. Tullius starts the season on a high enough mark but likes it here and shouldn't be far away. He's preferred to Weapon Of Choice of the others as Stuart Kittow's charge may need another run to put him straight.
