Fayr Fall could be one to watch

Tim Easterby's low grade performer Fayr Fall won a humble Class 6 affair at Wolverhampton with all the panache of a horse that looks definitely one to follow.
The three-year-old was never in any sort of trouble in winning only his second race since last May after halving his price in the maket from 9/1 as betting opened to 9/2.
Ridden for the first time by Ted Durcan, he shot home over the seven furlongs with any amount in hand and, so long as the handicapper doesn't over-react, looks a sure-fire winner in the making next time.

However, the race could be the swansong for one-time top Barry Hills prospect Huzzah - a Hunt Cup runner-up at one stage in his long career.
Opening as favourite, he drifted in the betting and came home a well-beaten seventh, to have his trainer Paul Howling moaning: "I had hoped that he'd changed his ways but he's a seriously difficult horse to win with these days."
In fact it's been over four years since the seven-year-old has found the winner's enclosure, and Howling added: "We've sorted out the problems he has had with the stalls but others are emerging.
"Get him to the front and he drops off and does exactly the same if we bring him from behind. It's difficult to know what to do with him."
