Stonecrabstomorrow has been running well on the polytrack this winter but it looks like that's his best surface these days so instead we prefer the chances of JUST BOND with Casino Night not out of calculations completely. The selection is up just two pounds for success over a mile here last time out adding further proof that quick ground is his forte. Including that last victory his previous two wins have come in similar conditions and while it is a danger the seven furlong trip is on the sharp he looks to have the best chance here. Richard Fahey's Stonecrabstomorrow is well treated on the pick of his turf form and was a dual winner, including in a handicap, on the polytrack this winter. While, however, he is obviously in good heart he is yet to score on turf. Casino Night likes a sound surface under hoof and went well in similar conditions at Newcastle last time. The extra two pound on her back will make things harder to go one better and win this time around but she should be in the mix. Golden Penny looks a little high in the weights but is another who could get in the thick of things while it's hard to see Talk of Saafend over turning the form of his last run with just a three pound swing withthe selection Just Bond.
