Frizzo is eased in grade but hasn't shown much since returning from injury. Bob's World has been struggling to get his head in front this season and still has his stamina to prove over this trip but Pierrers Bounty won over 3m at Hexham earlier this month while the mare Lua De Itapoan won by a wide margin over 2m4f at Sedgefield, though that looked a weak race. Huntingdon second High Kite definitely goes on the short-list and Big Sound was only beaten half-a-length over 3m1f here in January. LUCTOR EMERGO has won on the Fibresand since scoring by 10 lengths at Musselburgh in December. He's been waiting for the better ground and may be the one to beat again.
