This is a modest handicap and no better than the conditionals' race Fidelor won at Towcester earlier in the month. Though he doesn't appeal as a particularly progressive type and is 3lb higher now. Area Access couldn't follow up his Taunton success at Southwell and has gone up a further 7lb since but there are possibilities about Kelso second Gorey Lane. CLUES AND ARROWS was showing his first sign of ability when third at Fakenham. The longer trip is sure to see him in an even better light and he's getting weight from some thoroughly exposed and ordinary handicappers here.
