There's not much to go on by the way of course form. Wolverhampton winner Kinkohyo was well beaten here on her debut but the remainder have yet to race on Fibresand. Ealain Aibrean was beaten a long way on the Polytrack last time despite finishing third and DOUNEEDAHAND gets the speculative vote. She posted a better effort at Kempton on her return from a lay-off and an apprentice's 7lb claim further helps her cause. Argent Touch looks best of the remainder on her recent placed efforts at Wolverhampton.
