Several for whom market support would add further spice however BACHELOR KNIGHT has the form in the book to defy his weight. Rated 70, Richard Fahey's gelding comes here on the back of two average Wolverhampton runs. Switched back to six furlongs at a track where he is proven should be enough to see a renaissance of sorts. Ad Value needs to have improved for a break even with Fallon booked, and there may be more to fear from Blind Stag who has run well here before and Chilworth Lass who has found her level. Fred Willetts' last visit to Yorkshire resulted in a much improved run and blinkers may inspire, whilst the return to this trip is in Paragons Folly's favour and the yard are starting to fire. Trading, returning from a mini-break and Infectious, well-backed at Beverley last time, are the other two major players to take into consideration.
