Verdict

A tricky contest despite the small field. Naru had Lucky Mountain back in third when landing the second leg of a double at Wolverhampton in January. He's stepping up in trip for his Fibresand debut and Burgoyne's stamina will also be put to the test today. The latter won over a mile at this track three weeks ago but the safest option is to stick with GLENREEF. Mark Johnston's filly beat a John Gosden-trained hotpot over course and distance on her return to action and with further improvement expected, she can follow-up on her handicap debut.
