Lightly-raced for his age, FRONTIER FIGHTER has now won four of his eight starts after going in again at Pontefract last time. He stays the mile trip really well so today's extra furlong shouldn't prevent him adding to his tally. Nimiety scored over 6f as a two-year-old but hasn't raced since 2011 and it remains to be seen if she retains her ability. With a couple of runs each under their belts, Gala Casino Star and Satanic Beat now look set to show their best and the former is preferred dropped in class today.
