1.55: MISS FARA has come on a bomb since waiting tactics have been employed. She has over a stone less to carry compared to her narrow defeat on this course last month, and her subsequent winning form at Taunton, when conceding 11lb to the older Native Arrow, was made to look all the better when that horse won at Sandown last Saturday.


2.30: STAR TRAVELLER will take plenty of beating off 10st 2lb, provided the rains keep away. He did not enjoy going right-handed at Kempton but produced the goods on this course next time when cheekily keeping Gigi Beach at bay up the hill. Kim Bailey saddles Clinton despite this one being 8lb out of the handicap.

3.05: FOURTH IN LINE has been found another fine opening by his astute trainer. Ideally this 11-year-old would like the ground softer but he looked as good as ever when making his reappearance at Exeter. He can confirm superiority with the second, William O'Dee, and the main danger would have to be Act In Time, who won this race last year.


3.40: FLAGSHIP THER-ESE, a small mare with a big heart, looks capable of avenging the short head defeat by Tilty on the course last month.
