Placed on all four starts here, narrowly beaten twice but his overall record of 1-27 rather shows the issue. Nevertheless, brings solid form to the table and ran well again here last week, so if the new headgear works, has to be on the premises.
Has plenty of Fibresand experience to call upon, including a win here, but was struggling for form when last seen and that was back at the turn of the year, so plenty to prove on debut for new yard after a ling absence.
Didn't need to improve to win a little race at Wolverhampton last time, and a 1lb rise for that neither here nor there. No Fibresand experience but stays this far and is at least in form, so chances if she handles it.
Twice a winner over shorter trips here, but does seem to stay this far and was probably given too much to do when fifth here last week. May do better again and a good effort not ruled out.
No wins or places in seven starts and has shown only a modicum of promise in her four handicap starts. Needs to improve for this change of surface.
Still a maiden after 16 starts but is pretty consistent and ran as well as he has done when a close third at Newcastle last time out. Needs to prove he acts on the surface but one of the more likely ones if he does.
Fallen a fair way in the handicap and did at least turn in a better effort when a staying-on fourth at Nottingham last time out, but she's an infrequent winner and usually finds a few too good.
Just one win in 35 starts and going nowhere quickly at present. Unplaced on her only start on the surface and really not that hard to pass over tonight.
Maiden after 43 starts and there seems little chance of her making it 44th time lucky on recent evidence. Easy enough to look elsewhere.
Go back far enough and he does have a C&D win to his name, and he wasn't totally disgraced over hurdles here last time out. Needs a bit of imagination but not the lost cause that a few of these look.
Hard to know exactly what to make of her second to easy winner Land Of Winter here on her last run, as she was well beaten, but it did represent a step in the right direction and she is unexposed. One to consider.
Yet to trouble the judge after ten starts and has finished off weakly whatever the trip; hard to make a solid case for on Fibresand debut tonight.
Not shown a lot so far but hasn't been totally disgraced on last two starts, both handicaps, and sire does get a few winners on the surface. More interesting than a few, and a bit of market support would need heeding.
