Verdict

Minortransgression usually runs his race at this track although he ran below par behind Dubaianswer on his last visit. The latter subsequently won again here with COLOUR GUARD behind, but Mark Johnston's charge showed his inexperience on that occasion when losing ground early on and he's given another chance in this lesser company. General Tufto has struggled since last month's C&D victory, but Sir George went close on his only previous start on the Fibresand and could go well on his reappearance.
