GOING FOR BROKE had the form of his maiden win at Uttoxeter franked when runner-up Phobophiliac won easily at Southwell earlier this week and he should be able to take advantage of the 7lb he receives from Marquis Of Carabas. The latter only beat Toviere by two lengths at Warwick and that one was well behind Phobophiliac on Tuesday. Dan Skelton won this last year but his Oulamayo hasn't been getting home.
