This is a tougher claimer than the one won by Quality Art over track and trip last month when Vogarth was well beaten. R Woody makes more appeal given he went close in similar company on the Polytrack last time and has won on this surface before. Where's Reiley is a prolific course winner but isn't in the best of form at present and SHAWKANTANGO gets the vote. The latter has won two of his last three starts with another victory over course and distance his latest success and he's also preferred to Fibresand debutant Take The lead.
