TORERO makes his handicap and Fibresand debut today. He was a well-beaten third at Doncaster last time but that's still better form than today's opposition have so far shown and Kevin Ryan's charge is just preferred to Only Orsenfoolsies. The latter improved for the step up to 1m2f at Pontefract a week ago and that looks stronger form than Quiet Appeal's recent wins in lesser company on the Polytrack. Sweetnessandlight is a winner over 7f here but has plenty to prove over this longer trip.
