Foxy Act has been thereabouts in similar company here recently without looking like winning but continues to slip down the weights. The booking of the Ben Jones for the returning Get Wishing catches the eye but Main Fact will probably need this. Bells Of Peterboro has every chance when coming to grief at Ffos Las having placed earlier at Sedgefield. He is among the least exposed and ALL GOOD THINGS carries a penalty for a win in a similarly-modest contest at Southwell, though does appear to be improving so can score again. Southwell second Ishyaboi probably needs further and is hard to predict.
