Verdict

None of these have raced on Fibresand so Turf form is the only reference, in which case BUSHCRAFT looks the one to be on. Any improvement on his debut third to Biography at Sandown should be good enough to land this and Ed Walker's colt gets the vote ahead of She Can Jig. The latter disappointed last time but went close when fourth on her introduction at Carlisle and her yard's runners usually handle this surface. Boston Alex and Anytimeatall look best of the rest though there's a strong suspicion the speedily-bred Without Truth is capable of much better.
