OH RIGHT has been knocking on the door since returning from a year on the sidelines. The drop in distance shouldn't be a problem and, though 2lb higher than when third at Perth, may finally open his account over the larger obstacles. Farmer Frank only found Brimham Boy too good at Huntingdon last month and should also be thereabouts but neither Harris Garden nor Croco Mister have shown enough to suggest they'll be winning any time soon and Midnight Charmer hasn't raced since May, though is back on a winning mark.
