In depth

Verdict

WHISKY BRAVO has won four times over shorter trips on the Fibresand. He scored off today's mark on the Turf earlier in the year and is worth a try over 7f. Arabian Flight was winning only his second race in 40 starts when popping-up at Kempton in October but handles this surface and could figure along with Art Dzeko. The latter made the frame over 6f here during the summer, while All Right Now has won twice over the same distance this season and may get involved on the evidence of his best previous form at this venue.
