HANNAHS TURN is showing a distinct preference for the Fibresand. Well beaten at Wolverhampton in between a couple of course victories including last week's defeat of Baltic Prince, she can shrug off a penalty and go in again. Sylvia Pankhurst and Ayasha have been placed at the track but both were beaten a long way and Poppy Bond looks a bigger threat as last year's win came on soft ground at Redcar. Hawsies Dream will have come on for Sunday's reappearance at Lingfield and can figure if handling the surface.
