Star Up In The Sky has been winning at Southwell and Megaleka has won twice over the minimum trip this year. Amosite has a shout with an apprentice's allowance in her favour while a 7lb claimer takes over the reins on Oasis Spirit. Beylerbey was still beaten seven lengths when runner-up over 7f here, but Climaxfortackle went close the last time she competed over track and trip so makes more appeal. LAUGHING ROCK has been getting closer on the Fibresand recently and she gets the nod in this given she scored off today's mark on fast ground at Leicester last season.
