Yet to run on this surface he's from a stable that know what it takes here and his sire (Mayson) does well with his progeny here. Showed immediate improvement for this yard when staying on well to win over 7f last time; scope for more progress.

His four prior starts here are hardly anything to write home about with a couple of sixth places the best he can muster. Failed to live up to the form shown in his latest Wolverhampton win in three runs since; not hard to look elsewhere.

A Fibresand virgin her pedigree suggests she should act on this surface. Not quite living up to the form of her last win lately with that victory coming over 7f on Tapeta (ended a long losing run); chance if she handles the surface.

Three seconds from a trio of outings on this surface show that he is more than capable of winning here running into a progressive type last time. He's still without a win despite those consistent runs; hard to leave out of the equation.

With a career record of 1-38 he's hardly one to go overboard about but he has shown a liking for this surface running well on his last two starts over C&D. Once again off a basement mark he would need others to falter to win this; place chance.

Twice placed here in just two visits her form remains fairly modest and she's yet to get off the mark (0-10). Has taken well to Fibresand though and on the evidence of her last two starts a weak contest may fall her way in time.

Just a modest handicapper these days having been capable of better in the past in handicaps. 0-6 on Fibresand he generally forces the pace but doesn't really look in good enough form at the moment to pull those tactics off; easily passed over.

Showed a definite improvement in his form when finishing second over 1m here last time looking more than capable off this lowly mark. Vulnerable at the finish having been ridden close to the pace, he should cope with this return to 7f; shortlisted.

Hasn't shown much in the way of promise in three starts on Fibresand finishing well beaten on his three handicap starts. Any form that he does have to his name looks poor and he looks up against it with one or two progressive types in the field.

Forecast

Luscifer (11/8), The Retriever (5/2), My Law (9/2), Sea Shack (7/1), Ishebayorgrey (14/1), Caesonia (18/1), Casaruan (20/1), Billyoakes (28/1), Tavener (50/1)

Verdict

Unlike the other handicaps on the card there’s no winning course form on display here although The Retriever in particular has shown that he’s at home on this surface although with three seconds to his name in as many runs his finishing acumen may be called into question. My Law hasn’t run here before but his pedigree suggests that he’ll be fine on Fibresand and with his Kempton win reading well he’s clearly a danger here although he may well be suited by a return to 1m. LUSCIFER took a big stride forward in form terms last time with a good second to one who won again next time. Given a 5lb rise for that run he’s taken to gain his first win over this shorter trip.
