In depth

Verdict

Fast Finian boasts the highest official rating and has obvious claims if taking to the Fibresand. But MY SON MAX has course form to his credit including a resounding six length win over track and trip in March. He should have the beating of recent fourth Intrepid and Michael Blake's charge gets the vote. Amenable and Masia Moon have both won on Fibresand before but have something to find on these terms while Midaz and Warfare are even harder to fancy at the weights.
