PENMORE MILL is worth sticking with in this. He's won a couple of similar events at Fakenham, the last time by a distance and today's rivals don't look much of a threat. Impact Zone arrives in good form but has stacks to find with the selection on official ratings while Playing The Field and Defying Gravity are rated closer too the likely favourite, but are both out of form. Point Proven went close in one of these events at Leicester when last over regulation fences and looks best of the rest.
