A prolific winner on the all-weather, Sofias Number One was well beaten over 7f here in between winning on the Fibresand at Southwell. He's overlooked despite racing off a much lower mark on this surface. Catchanova is preferred on his recent efforts on the Polytrack but My Manekineko's recent improvement has come over longer trips than this. Petersboden has a shout after a narrow-margin defeat at Brighton but EXCLUSIVE WATERS is taken to defy a penalty for an easy win at Lingfield on Saturday and go in again.
