Marford Missile was due to run at Pontefract yesterday and his participation here may depend on how he's come out of that. Fathsta was a bit disappointing over 7f here on Saturday while Main Beach's only win so far this year came in a seller at Redcar, though he has been placed in better company since. Munsarim has a perfect six out of six record in all-weather claimers this year but hasn't been seen since July and will probably struggle to confirm C&D running back in April with KAY GEE BE. Only beaten three-quarter-of-a-length on that occasion, Richard Fahey's eight-year-old is 14lb better off now and has won twice on the Turf this summer. Indian Art would have claims on his form here in the spring but has been a bit below par of late.
