Verdict

Frank The Slink last won two years ago and has been pulled up in four of his seven subsequent starts in similar company. Farm Pixie has never won a race but came very close at Carlisle a month ago when just failing to match strides with Fozy Moss. Mr Syntax has generally performed at a slightly higher level and showed at Doncaster last time that he should be winning again soon but the concession of 21lb to MR SUPREME may prove beyond him. Keith Reveley's charge has dropped to a winnable mark and his second to The Panama Kid at Doncaster suggested this could be his day.
