All Right Now has won twice on the Fibresand including his latest start over today's trip. Bertie Blu Boy is preferred on this surface and is holding his form well having landed a hat-trick of course and distance victories earlier in the year. Alnoomaas returned a beaten favourite over 6f at Kempton a fortnight and is looking to make amends with Richard Hughes on board and Presumido is another with claims on the evidence of his recent placed efforts. But SHIFTING STAR gets the speculative vote on his earlier second over track and trip and West Leake is also thrown into the mix for good measure in what looks something of a lottery.
