Captain Scooby rattled-up a hat-trick on soft ground in September. But he's up another 3lb for his Fibresand debut and is taken on with MONSIEUR JAMIE. The latter had trouble in the stalls the last time he raced here in March, but was cleanly away on his reappearance in September, and his previous four starts over C&D had yielded three wins and a second. He makes more appeal than Dancing Freddy and Six Wives, who both have form at this track that entitles them to consideration, while the prolific Polytrack winner Island Legend could also figure if he handles the surface.
