None of these inspire any confidence as The Dancing Lord has been well beaten in similar company on Polytrack of late and so has Miserere Mei. Beechey's Beauty, Thorpe Bay and Make Up have the placed form to figure, though none have raced on Fibresand before, and a speculative vote goes to SMACKER. He's having only his third start, but improved when fourth at Nottingham last month and Hughie Morrison's gelding may be better than he's shown so far. Newcomer Ficelle is one to note in the betting.
