Some guesswork needed as the leading contenders have no experience of Fibresand. Willie Haggas' representatives usually act on the surface, however, as proven by the yard's outstanding strike rate here and LADY MALET looks to have a good chance of opening her account having been placed three times on the Polytrack. Black Rider has also shown some promise at Wolverhampton and had Dutch Delight behind when fourth last time while Village Green could figure after a better effort at the same track a fortnight ago. Kevin Ryan runs three with the newcomer Repetition perhaps the best of those but Script has plenty to find on these terms.
