Consistent Type Ready To Get Her Head In Front With Conditions To Suit

Four-year-old filly SO NEAR SO FARHH should know her own way along the M4 to Chepstow by now as she has done it for her last three runs, and she looks to add to her success there in the iStadia Screens Supports Wales Children's Air Ambulance Handicap this evening. Trainer Mick Channon has obviously picked up on the horse's liking for the track and sends her there again from his stables in Berkshire. Those races, as today, have been over the two miles of the Welsh track and the filly has won two of them, off marks of 64 and 67.

She goes off a nominal 70 this evening, and although it isn't a new ploy to put up an apprentice to offset a rise in the weights, Channon can do it successfully with Scott McCullagh, who claims five, bringing the horse's mark down to 65 if the pilot is better than his claim. McCullagh has ridden a shade over 10% winners from 278 attempts and got Earl Of Harrow home at Lingfield just last Saturday. So Near So Farhh has won on soft and heavy, so the ground won't bother her.

MAKE GOOD looks next best and is top on BTO ratings. He broke a long losing run at Nottingham last month and the second, The Fiddler, has come out and won since at Redcar so, the form looks solid. Star apprentice Cieren Fallon takes off 5lb.

ROSIE ROYALE is another threat and won over 1m4f here in July. She was then fourth at Bath over two furlongs longer and though her pedigree suggests she'll get two miles, a couple of races over that trip have seen her down the field. ATOMIC JACK will probably try to make all and he won on soft at Lingfield in June. His latest run saw him a good second there over two miles four furlongs and he may need that extreme distance to win off his present mark of 70.

At 7/2, So Near So Farhh can make it a happy trip from West Ilsley into Wales and back.
