Shawkantango has proved best on the Fibresand so far with four wins at Southwell to his credit and is taken on with SIMPLE RHYTHM here. John Ryan's mare is only 1lb higher than her last win and this looks less competitive than last Thursday's contest at Folkestone in which she finished fourth. Tournedos is back on a winning mark if producing his best, but Duke Of Rainford and Bold Bomber have done their recent winning on the Polytrack and both look high enough in the weights.
