'He's up in class but track and ground should suit'.

Byline: Race analysis by Richard Birch REPORTING BY DAVID MILNES

RACE IN FOCUS 3.00 Yarmouth Cazoo Handicap 7f, 3yo+ Sky Card and Spotlight, page 21

TO A large extent this 0-80 revolves around handicap debutante Farhh To Shy, who has the scope to prove a deal better than her opening mark.

All three of her runs have been at Yarmouth and she ran out a fluent length-and-threequarter scorer from Media Blitz on the second occasion.

The form of that race doesn't appear to amount to much - even though the fifth, Thread Count, has won at Windsor since - but it was the manner of victory that impressed.

After travelling strongly to the furlong pole, Farhh To Shy needed only hands and heels assistance from Tom Queally to seal the deal, winning with plenty in hand.

She didn't move as smoothly through the race when beaten a short head by Maajdah subsequently, leaving the impression a longer trip than 6f would see her to better effect.

This step up to 7f coincides with her graduating to handicaps and many will look no further for the winner in what doesn't look the strongest of heats.

Dashing Dick, the only other course winner in the eight-runner field, brings a thoroughly consistent profile but there's just a suspicion the handicapper could be in charge now, a comment that may also be applied to Sir Benedict, twice a runner-up off 78 on his last two starts.

The four-year-old Asmund, who often goes from the front, seems sure to run a bold race off a low weight of 8st 8lb.

Whether he can resist Farrh To Shy's turn of foot on ground that is likely to be getting quicker throughout the day is another matter.

What they say George Margarson, trainer of Farhh To Shy She was just touched off over six furlongs there last time and I think this extra furlong will improve her further. She's a progressive filly who we quite like.

Louis Steward, rider of Sir Benedict Kevin Stott poached an easy lead in front on the winner when Sir Benedict finished second at Leicester last time so he could be marked up on that and the track and trip should suit him.

Conrad Allen, trainer of Impeach We are still on a learning curve with him but we were disappointed with how he ran last time when he played up after they took the red hood off him at the start. We're keeping the hood on this time so hopefully he can show some improvement.

Michael Bell, trainer of Bobby On The Beat We call him 'Bobby Gets Beat' as he's yet to get his head in front but it will happen one day and on the plus side one of his best performances came at Yarmouth.

Declan Carroll, trainer of Asmund We do well with our runners at Yarmouth and this fellow has been running consistently without winning but there have been no excuses. He's up in class but the track and ground should suit him.
