An open handicap can be taken by WEAR 'EM OUT WILF, who looks capable of success on his debut in this sphere. Peter Chapple-Hyam's colt took a better-than-average Yarmouth maiden on fast ground last time when the front pair drew clear and gets in here with a mark of 79. The performance that day suggested that he can continue to progress now sent handicapping and given that he is unexposed we will side with him. Fault has been well placed to win sellers at Leicester and Folkestone in August but the assessor is now asking searching questions of him back in this sphere and he will do well to complete a hat-trick. Another Try is in cracking form and we will have a clearer pointer as to his chance from the performance of Hi Shinko, who finished just ahead of him last time, earlier on the card. My Learned Friend goes well here and is slipping to a handy mark, while Red Yarn is another course and distance scorer who is much respected.
