610-1OR: 76CD
13/8

Built on the promise of his previous run when scoring over C&D last time producing his best effort of the season to win by over 3L (first success in GB). 5lb higher now due to a penalty he took well to the surface and should remain competitive.

Losing run is starting to reach serious proportions now and she steps onto the Fibresand for the first time (sire; Motivator has a poor record here). Failed to get competitive last time (poorly placed); has some quirks, not hard to question her chanc

Course winner earlier in the year one of a quartet of victories and wasted no time in returning to form back over C&D last time off this mark behind Al Erayg. Forced wide when making up ground/his challenge; capable of winning off this mark.

Never set foot on Fibresand before having won at Limerick in July (1m, good) when with Joseph O'Brien. Found out in more competitive affair after that he now makes his first start for this yard; doesn't look especially well handicapped and best watch

On a hat-trick but slightly up in grade having won two 0-70 handicaps the most recent over C&D off a 5lb lower mark. In good heart at the moment (last time out form has already been franked); effective off higher marks in the past; major player.

AW 1m winner at Chelmsford earlier in the year; been back on track last two starts over the same C&D despite being unsuited by a steady gallop last time. Better than her finishing position last time, could well be effective if taking to Fibresand.

His form here reads 33325 so its fair to say that he can act on the surface to a certain extent. Dual turf winner earlier in the year on his early starts for this yard over 7f he's failed meet expectations on his last two starts (failed to settle las

Back to winning ways last time out to make it five course victories (three over this trip) having looked out of sorts this year. Now she's back in the groove there may be more to come as she has been effective off higher marks in the past.

9/1

Five-time C&D winner who does all his winning here and took advantage of a fall in the weights to score here in September. Twice run here since the last time over 7f (trip on the short side for him); still ran a good second; would be hard to ignore.

Given her sire its hardly a surprise she has won over C&D (finished third on her two other visits); not won since her C&D victory and may well have gone off the boil. Break may have refreshed her and she can't be written off given her C&D record.

Took a pair of lower grade Fibresand handicaps over 7f earlier in the year but didn't looks suited by conditions when last seen on turf in May/June. A return here after a break may spark a revival but she has to prove herself off this sort of mark.

Betting

Forecast

Al Erayg (13/8), Makambe (7/2), Bond Angel (9/1), Muqarred (9/1), Ollivander (12/1), Fancy Footings (14/1), Dashing Poet (14/1), Moxy Mares (20/1), Filles De Fleur (25/1), John Betjeman (25/1), Fieldsman (40/1), Sylviacliffs (40/1)

Verdict

The way that Al Erayg travelled when winning over C&D last time marked him down as one to note on Fibresand in the future and even under his penalty he’s 2lb well-in here and looks to have a major chance of following up and confirming form with Ollivander who was third in that contest. The hat-trick seeking MAKAMBE is narrowly preferred though especially as his C&D win here last month has been franked since and he as in the past coped well with this mark. Bond Angel was one of the horses to put a plus sign on that Makambe form and she’s respected again along with Muqarred and Dashing Poet both of whom are C&D winners.
  1. Makambe
