The aptly named MISTER FROSTY won an amateurs' race at Southwell during the week. This is tougher under a penalty but he ran out an easy winner and the booking of Kieren Fallon suggests another big run is in the offing. Celtic Charlie also arrives on the back of a win, over 1m5f here, and should be in the firing-line once again while Grecian Goddess can make the frame as she was fourth at Kempton last month ahead of Avon Supreme, El Libertador, Visions Of Johanna and Moscow Oznick.
