One win on the Fibresand in 36 starts doesn't boost confidence in Tobrata's chances though he's been placed on his last couple of outings. Amtired's record isn't much better with his only win on the Flat also coming at Southwell. Valantino Oyster won a couple of times in 2013 but was well beaten when returning to action in last year's renewal so a speculative vote goes to FROSTY BERRY. She missed out on a win last term but went close on a couple of occasions and a similar effort should see her in the mix in this lowly company.
