Gogeo has slipped down the weights and came good over 1m3f here last time. A winner over hurdles, he should see out today's longer trip, but NOGUCHI is just preferred. The latter recorded a double in claiming races at this time last year including a win at this venue and George Margarson's charge is also expected to last home as he steps up in distance. Monzino has won on the surface but arrives badly out of form while Hail Tiberius has gone close over 2m at Lingfield recently but has yet to race on Fibresand. It's hard to make a case for any of the remainder.
