In depth

Verdict

Dubawi Island has the best recent form but on the Fibresand at Southwell and over longer trips than this. Dr Red Eye has yet to win on Polytrack and is having his first start since October while the handicapper looks to have caught up with Al's Memory judged on his recent efforts. The latter finished three lengths behind SILVERWARE at Kempton last week where Kristen Stubbs' charge was beaten less than a length in third. He gets the vote in this ahead of The Guru Of Gloom, who beat Showboating earlier this month but was engaged to run at Kempton yesterday.
