CAPAILL LIATH handles most types of going though has yet to race on this surface but he's clear at the weights and is the one to beat if running anywhere near his mark. Bay Knight has won in soft ground and is dropped in class today while Llewellyn has been placed at this track but has a bit to find on today's terms. Illustrious Prince and Silly Billy are others with course form but facing a tough task while the formerly smart handicapper Justonefortheroad was well beaten on his only previous start on the Fibresand.
