PELICAN ROCK is hard to get away from in this. He's finished runner-up to hat-trick heroine Samasana over C&D on his last couple of starts and Tom Dascombe looks to have found a good opportunity today for him to open his account. Tigresa ran a shocker at Dundalk last time after showing a glimpse of promise at Wolverhampton but, along with Waspy and Jacasa Too, has yet to race on Fibresand. Bountiful Catch has a fourth over 6f at this course to his credit and should stay today's longer distance.
