GEORGE FENTON can usually be relied on to run his race. He's chasing a hat-trick off only a 2lb higher mark and gets the nod. There's little between Spartic and Chjimes on recent running over C&D but Ace of Spies has done all his winning on the Fibresand including his latest start. Wolverhampton winner Mey Blossom can be given a chance on her latest second at this track when just ahead of Speedyfix and Loyal Royal and has been threatening to end his losing run with a couple of recent placed efforts.
