Dubawi Island's only victory so far came over track and trip but he's been thereabouts on Polytrack off his current mark and looks a threat along with The Lock Master, a dual winner over course and distance. LOYALTY was placed on his only previous start here but has been in fine form in competitive handicaps at Lingfield recently and he gets the nod dropping down a grade after his latest third to Emerald Wilderness. Chookie Avon and Piceno handle the Fibresand and make most appeal of the remainder though both have something to prove at this level.
