Verdict

Strikemaster arrives in fine form, but is stepping up in class in attempting to land a hat-trick and could find MIDNIGHT WALTZ too good here. Sir Mark Prescott's filly tries a longer trip on her handicap debut after three starts on the Polytrack and a big improvement is expected. Dark Spirit won over hurdles in September, but makes her Fibresand debut 13lb higher than when scoring on the Flat in August and First Rock makes more appeal having won a bumper at this track last year. Indian Pipe Dream has been a big improver over fences this year and may figure back on the level.
