Verdict

A switch back to her preferred Fibresand surface and Lujiana could show some improvement but five furlongs would suit her better. The trip isn't a problem for Angaric but the artificial has never been his favoured domain. Desert Strike runs under penalty after a solid win on the Polytrack when racing from a favourable mark and may struggle to follow up with that extra weight. Accamelia is starting to look very exposed and is unbackable on artificial debut without encouraging signs in the market. Athaakeel has dropped to a likeable mark but disappointed on her one and only start here and may not be suited by the Fibresand. Cape Of Storms has won three times here but he is very much more miss than hit. It remains to be seen how the drop back in trip to six furlongs will suit Nicholas Pocock but he seems in good heart with two runner-up efforts of late. However, a chance is taken on BEST KNOWN SECRET who seems to be progressing after a belated start to her racing career. She has run well finishing second in her last two tries here and it wouldn't take a massive leap of faith to see her go one better today.
