Where's Reiley had looked a Fibresand specialist until landing a seller over 5f on the Polytrack at Lingfield last time. He should figure stepping up in trip if lasting home, but C&D winner MARAJAA looks a safer option. Willie Musson's charge hasn't been disgraced in handicap company lately and the drop into this grade can see him back to winning ways. City Legend won a claimer at Lingfield last month, but has a few pounds to find with the selection on today's terms, and Fishforcompliments and Lutine Charlie look likely to pose a bigger threat.
