None of these inspire confidence including Farhh Away, who went close at Newcastle before disappointing in a maiden race here. First Dance drops in class and trip while Mina Vagante has failed to threaten in novice company though may improve now handicapping for the first time. Tom's Anna’s earlier placed efforts came in testing going and a chance is taken on ELDELBAR. A dual winner in France last year, he’s slid down the weights since joining Geoff Harker and ran his best race so far for the latter when staying on well over 7f at Catterick last time suggesting this longer trip will suit.
