BESTY never looked like winning, despite finishing runner-up, over 6f here last time but this is easier and he should be scoring off his current mark sooner rather than later. He gets the tentative vote ahead of recent Beverley winner Tuibama, who carries a penalty for last week's victory when previous Redcar winner Hab Reeh back in third. Lees Anthem could be thereabouts if at his best and the same comment applies to Sally's Swansong, who has been running well for most of this year without getting her head in front.
