Something was clearly amiss with CASTLE BEACH at Uttoxeter in April. A promising second on his hurdling debut at Ffos Las, he's been given plenty of time to recover and can get off the mark in this getting 9lb from Stratford scorer Falcarragh. Tim Vaughan's charge was proving difficult to win with earlier while the other pair are only likely to figure if an accident befalls the principals.
