Dual 1m winner for this yard but options improved by switching to 7f and has won his last two, including over C&D; up just 3lb for the latter win over Custard The Dragon and this strong finisher is not fully exposed.

J: Lewis Edmunds

Has eight wins on his CV but they have all been over longer trips and he's been generally disappointing since his last success in May; wasn't disgraced when a market springer here (1m) last week but his tactical speed will be tested back at this trip and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Multiple winner on Fibresand here who has taken the switch in surface in his stride, chasing home Cliffcake on return from a layoff, then wore down rivals to lead near the line 18 days ago; not far away.

Four-time C&D winner, the latest of them last January off a 7lb higher mark; he has run creditably the last twice, no match for Million Reasons last month but perhaps not advantaged by his track position on that occasion; has the ability to give another good account.

J: Jason Hart

T: Julie Camacho

Four-time C&D winner who is on a very dangerous mark and he showed signs of a revival when 80-1 third at Southwell (7f, Tapeta; hood added) last time; now drops back in trip/grade and is big player if he can build on that last run.

Form & Verdict

Four wins on Fibresand; has made a good start for this trainer, following a close second to Daafy over 1m here with a powerful front-running win over C&D on Thursday; has won consecutive races with a two-day gap so a quick turnaround shouldn't be a problem; good claims with no penalty.

Losing run goes back two years and he's been treading water at different trips on the AW this winter but now 6lb lower than when going close on his latest turf run, at Chester in September (extended 7f, heavy); slight concern that this is only his second run on turf in the last 19 months but there's a weights case to be made.
