Verdict

This looks a tight handicap on paper but MIAKO stands out on course form. He looked a natural on this surface when leaving his previous efforts behind to score by five lengths over track and trip last time and can follow-up despite a hefty 10lb rise. Girl At The Sands is another at home on the Fibresand though her victory in a claimer here last month is inferior to that of the selection and Space Artist makes more appeal. He landed a double on Polytrack at the end of last year and Bryan Smart's charges usually go well at this course, as do the Johnston yard's runners and Opt Out can figure ahead of Welliesinthewater and Wolverhampton specialist Sewn Up.
