Sir Frank Morgan has returned to action much improved and landed a double over today's trip at Wolverhampton last week. Penalised for that success, he'll still be a short-price to record a hat-trick on his Fibresand debut given Adili and Teajaybe were both well beaten here last time. Saying that, the latter had little chance against Mr Burbidge on unfavourable terms last week and much better is expected here. Joyful Motive is easily overlooked but NADEMA ROSE finished third at Wolverhampton on her reappearance and rates a sporting selection. She was rated 11lb higher at the start of last year and could give the likely favourite something to think about if taking to the surface.
