In depth


Make Good sets the standard, but it isn't a high bar to aim at, and conceding weight all around might prove tricky for the surprise Doncaster winner. Deadly Accurate , also outrunning his price last time, and Hateya , who must repeat her debut effort at Brighton rather than the subsequent follow-up, are others worth a mention but this could prove an ideal starting place for VOICE OF THE NORTH . Mark Johnston's team are in super form lately and with a Derby entry for next summer under his arm, he may prove up to this challenge.
