This should be between FRANKTHETANK and Queenie's Home, who are clear at the weights. The latter was placed on her only previous start on Fibresand but the former scored easily over a mile here in February. Keith Dalgleish's charge looks the most likely winner and gets the nod. Danny Brock's 5lb allowance gives Black Vale a chance if either of the principles fails to fire but the remainder look up against it on these terms.
