Latest win at Catterick in August. Not entirely disgraced when sixth of 14 in handicap (16/1) at Newcastle (6f) 37 days ago, but needs more back on fibresand.

Found good run coming to halt when down the field at Redcar (6f, heavy, 10/3) 31 days ago, going with little fluency. Makes fibresand debut and must bounce back.

Betting

Ustath (11/8) Kaafy (10/3) Red Bravo (17/2) Phantasmal (17/2) Rhubarb (12/1) Wots The Wifi Code (14/1) Middlescence (14/1) Zuckerberg (18/1) Excessable (22/1) Archimedes (25/1)

Verdict

USTATH has thrived since tackling fibresand and can complete the 4-timer. Kaafy is another who has benefited from the switch to this surface recently and needs respecting, along with Phantasmal, who had little go right at Newcastle last time.

  1. USTATH
  2. KAAFY (IRE)
