KOO AND THE GANG has shown progressive form on this surface since being stepped up in trip. He won twice here last month and a 7lb rise for his latest C&D success is unlikely to prevent a follow-up given the ease of his victory. El Libertador is the only other recent winner in the field though his Wolverhampton victory was his first in 28 starts, but Elusive Fame has won four times on Fibresand and is back on a winning mark. The latter is fancied to reverse earlier running with El Dececy here on much better terms. Mozayada and Elhamri could prove best of the rest.
