Course and distance winner YASIR returns to the Fibresand. He's been in decent form over hurdles of late and gets a token vote in a pretty desperate affair. Aryzad scored at Newcastle last year and may get involved on her belated seasonal debut but Shirocco Passion's victory at Redcar last term came over 7f. Master Dan has made the frame here off today's mark and Rocked The Boat is unexposed.
