5/1

Placed once from four starts on the surface, has been hard to win with this year but has produced some solid efforts in defeat, including on last two starts. Trip suits but has only won once in 27 starts, which rather highlights the issue.

Has been falling quickly in the handicap for some time, and hasn't shown much in four starts for his latest yard. Hard to make much of a case for in current frame of mind.

Good record on this surface (a win and five places from six starts), yet to win at 7f but stays this far and despite not racing since May, has gone well fresh before. Clear chance if ready to roll after her break.

Has form on artificial surfaces but it's mainly on the faster surface at Lingfield, and this surface is a total unknown. Remains in good form and trip fine, but on balance, others make a bit more appeal.

Looks regressive and little to cheer on recent efforts, hopes seem to lie in the change of surface here (first go on Fibrresand) but that's not much to hang your hat on.

Ready winner over C&D last November, so no issue with the surface, but has thrown in some dreadful efforts this summer and hard to know what sort of form he's in. That course win means he can't be discounted, but clearly risky.

Barely beaten a horse home in any of his last five starts and is sliding quickly in the handicap now. Well beaten on the surface last week and hard to see why it should be any different here.

Does at least have a win to his name this year, that coming when springing a 33-1 surprise at Wolverhampton back in July, but an awful run at Newcastle when last seen, and lack of Fibresand experience temper enthusiasm.

Claimed for 10k by Denis Quinn after finishing second in a Redcar seller last time, which was at least a step back in the right direction. Might act on the surface and well enough handicapped if he can. One to consider from a decent draw.

Two starts at the track have seen him win a 6f handicap and last week finish a staying-on fifth to an easy winner, so handles the surface well. Worth a try at 7f and if the hood does the trick, could take a hand in the finish.

Doing little wrong at present, winning at Wolverhampton (from 3lb lower than today) in August and then running a solid third over a mile here. Drawn to attack and drop back in trip shouldn't be an issue, so has each-way chances.

Betting

Forecast

French Twist (4/1), Awa Bomba (9/2), Esprit De Corps (5/1), Liamba (11/2), Kendergarten Kop (7/1), Barton Mills (10/1), London Protocol (12/1), Stronsay (12/1), Primeiro Boy (14/1), Gremoboy (25/1), Watheer (33/1), Intense Style (50/1)

Verdict

LIAMBA looks the solid option in a race where there aren't too many you can fancy. She may not have a lot of wriggle room off her mark but she runs her race here every time, and should get a nice lead from French Twist in the stall next door. French Twist herself is quite interesting, given she is proven on the surface and might have a bit more to come, and of the others, Awa Bomba, worth a try back at 7f, and Intense Style, make the most appeal.
