First time on Fibresand but continues out of sorts on the AW turning in a very Flat effort at Kempton last time over 7f. Fair performer at his best but hard to make a case for him here against a couple of well handicapped sorts.

Taken well to this surface going 2-2 over C&D completing a hat-trick last time with relative ease all his wins coming under today's rider. 7lb higher this time around he's up in grade here but his prowess on this surface keeps him in the picture.

First run for this yard having been sold from Sheila Lavery's yard for €3,500. Attracted support at Dundalk on his last run for that yard but lacks any Fibresand form; dropped 2lb from his last run, one to keep an eye on in the market.

4/5

Sprang to life on just his second attempt on Fibresand when taking a 0-55 C&D handicap in fair style off the back of an eight-week break. This will prove tougher off a 5lb higher mark in a better grade; hard to ignore given the panache of his win.

Dual C&D winner with the second of those wins coming off a mark much higher than today's. Nor ideally placed here over 7f last time but did at least run better than of late, would need to progress again to take a hand in this against two improvers.

C&D off a 4lb lower mark in first-time cheekpieces on his penultimate starts his first on Fibresand (helped by being held up in a strongly-run race). Never threated to get anywhere that performance level at Newcastle last time; faces a stiff task.

Forecast

Motahassen (4/5), Clipsham Tiger (5/2), Jazz Hands (7/1), Tagur (14/1), Madeeh (25/1), Inner Circle (40/1), Natty Dresser (50/1)

Verdict

This ought to boil down to a head-to-head between two protagonists who have really taken to this surface both winning in good style last time although the duo are both faced with harder tasks than of late here. CLIPSHAM TIGER just shades the argument having won his last three with two of them being over C&D with 7lb claimer George Rooke in the saddle each time. 6lb higher this time he remains of interest over the other improving sort in the line up Motahassen who romped home by 7L last time but faces a stiffer task here under a 5lb penalty. Jazz Hands and Tagur are both C&D winners so can’t be ignored and the latter did look to be returning to form last time.
