Has taken to this surface very well and comes here defending an unbeaten record at the track (2-2); both of those wins coming at 1m4f. Breezed home last time, looks well up to completing his hat-trick being 2lb well-in under his penalty.
Connections looked as though they were testing the waters on her GB/stable/Fibresand debut over a trip that looked plenty short enough (1m). Ran better over this trip last time on Polytrack; cheekpieces on first-time, mark still looks stiff.
A winner on Fibresand five time (three over C&D) this test will hold no fears for him although he is sitting on a fair losing sequence at the moment. Poor effort last time masked what looked to be a return to form in prior runs; well handicapped.
Course winner (1m4f) with that victory being the first leg of an AW hat-trick at the start of last year. Shaped well here last time off a break over 1m4f, travelled well but once again only produced a tame finish; looks a vulnerable sort.
