PETER THE GREAT faded away in the closing stages at Pontefract but it was soft going on that occasion and that was his first outing since last summer. He looks worth another chance on last year’s form. Possible Man returns to action having won off today’s mark at Nottingham last term while Arij has been hurdling though went close at Chelmsford when last on the all-weather. Ghost Rider is upped in class after placing at Wolverhampton and Harswell Duke is upped in distance on his second start for Roger Fell.
