Given he can boast an excellent strike rate at this track, Sir Mark Prescott's filly YOURS EVER is likely to prove popular. She finished third in soft ground at Newcastle last time and a chance is taken she'll take to the Fibresand. Sparkling Portrait also has claims as she's been placed in both starts to date including at Wolverhampton three weeks ago, although Our Ivor was still beaten a long way when third over C&D last month. Mark Johnston runs a couple of newcomers in Gabrial's Hope and Saslong and both are worth noting for any strong support in the betting.
