Bawaardi was beaten the last time he was dropped into this grade and previous efforts at this track don't boost confidence, while though Ingleby Arch is a multiple winner over 6f here he has never looked like winning over today's trip before. Jobe scored over C&D last month on his first outing on the Fibresand and should go close again in similar company, but AUTUMN BLADES is preferred. He did finish well behind the latter here before bouncing back with a second at Wolverhampton last time but, now Ruth Carr appears to have found the key to him, the C&D winner is fancied to get his head back in front.
