Frankthetank has the proven form on Fibresand with a couple of wins to his name, including a five-length victory here last week. But this is much tougher under a penalty and it would be no surprise if BRANSTON DE SOTO takes to the surface. The latter has every chance on his second in soft ground at Nottingham in October while Turnbury is another with claims on his recent Polytrack form. Wolverhampton maiden winner Clever Miss makes more appeal than Khee Society as she returns to action.
