STEELE RANGER has no experience of the Fibresand but will likely be a short price to make a winning comeback in this lowly company. He's the only one with any worthwhile form having been placed at both Kempton and Thirsk last year and Peter Chapple-Hyam's charge should be opening his account. Jiminy sneaked into a place here earlier in the year but has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms, as does Elusive. Well beaten on her debut at Doncaster in November, Roomie may have improved over the winter and can finish closer.
