YUFTEN returns to his correct grade and likes the track. His latest victory was in a Bellewstown claimer but his latest efforts have been in much better company. Major Reward, who made a winning debut here last September, has also been performing in better class and has to be a threat while The Game Of Life, twice a winner here last winter, should be ready for this after two runs following a long break. Tennessee Wildcat has won three times around here and his latest victory came at this level at Gowran in August while the selection's stable companion Tony The Gent has managed to win five times on Turf though never here.
