Verdict

Ian Williams has his string in good form and FAIRMILE can provide him with another winner; the list of dangers is headed by Carte Diamond and Young Mick. The selection does have an absence to overcome but he was in good form when last seen out and if he can pick up where he left off last season then he would prove hard to beat. Carte Diamond is a course and distance winner and the ground was a valid explanation for his below-par effort on his most recent outing so he could fare better today. Young Mick is fit from a winter campaign in Dubai and he ended a long losing sequence on the turf when he posted a victory at Leicester back in October. He might be capable of making the frame here along with Tastahil who hails from a yard in form. There is plenty to recommend Fairmile who is put forward as the pick.
