In depth

Verdict

Plenty of these with previous form on the Fibresand. Not least, Elusive Warrior, who does most of his racing here but hasn't won since 2010. Jonnie Skull pops-up occasionally at this level and is not badly handicapped but Ace Of Spies was expected to do better when beaten over four lengths here last time. Both of MONTE CASSINO's wins came at this track and with a recent return from a layoff under his belt, Bryan Smart's charge looks to have every chance with a 5lb claimer on board to help his cause. Son Vida and Koo And The Gang have tumbled down the weights and could go well.
