Frequency bids for his hat trick after victories at Lingfield and at this track last time. He has the beating of Apache Ridge on recent form but may struggle giving so much weight to RESTLESS BAY. The latter has found life tough in handicap company of late but a drop in class here, as well as the application of a visor, could provide the means to get his head back in front. Eternal Youth has a chance at the weights but looks a temperamental sort and Decider and Kersivay make more appeal.
