Peak Seasons went close to following up his win at Towcester when beaten only a head over a longer trip at Fakenham last week. He should be in the mix once again but ARROW BARROW is preferred. The latter finished a creditable third in a better race at Wetherby last time and can finally open his account over fences with a conditional's 7lb claim helping his cause. Flichity failed to complete after a couple of blunders at Uttoxeter last time but has every chance on his earlier second over 3m here. The remainder arrive out of form and are harder to fancy.
