In depth

Verdict

None of these have experience of the Fibresand and winning hurdler Vodka Wells makes a quick reappearance after finishing third at Carlisle earlier this week while Carraig Rock cut little ice in soft ground at Haydock last time. But the latter's yard have a good record at this venue and also runs the so-far disappointing Key To Your Heart. John Gosden's runners also enjoy plenty of success here and HOLBERG SUITE is taken to handle the surface on the back of a couple of placed efforts on the Polytrack. She's just preferred to Lamorak, a runner-up at Redcar last time.
