5/4

For all he's a quirky and unreliable type he is 6-14 over C&D with his latest win coming as recently as November albeit off a career-low mark in today's headgear combination. Has run well since then in both starts despite looking typically awkward.

Three-time course winner with form figures of 116 over C&D although the first of those victories did come in selling grade. Lost his unbeaten record at the track last time under a penalty never getting beyond midfield; now in the veteran stage.

7/2

Still a maiden with a career record that stands at 0-21 but despite not winning he turned in another creditable effort last time. Clearly acts well enough on this track (4242 here) and second to an improving sort last time who has since won again.

Given his pedigree it's not surprising that he's found some improvement on this surface hitting the first four on all his starts here. Not in the same form on Tapeta last time (tougher race than this); will appreciate drop in grade/Fibresand return.

14/1

Rather enigmatic sort who has won five times on Fibresand (twice over 5f) but hasn't won for nearly a year. Most of his recent runs are unflattering although with cheekpieces back on he may do better; stable are rather quiet though.

Still a maiden with a career record of 0-9 and very little to show for those outings. Tried over trips up to 7f but even after wind surgery there appears to be very little ability for him to use.

Verdict

He’s not the easiest ride by any stretch of the imagination but Piazon has won six times over C&D with this headgear combination looking to have rejuvenated him of late. His quirks though may open the door for maiden FURNI FACTORS to finally open his account he’s shown he can act on this unique surface with some sound recent efforts to his name. Divine Call incredibly had a gap of eight years between his first two Fibresand wins but is now in the veteran stage. Gorgeous General isn’t left out of this having shown that he’s at home on this surface and he may be able to fill out one of the minor places.
