Scrooby Doo has done all her all-weather racing on the Fibresand so far but had Chester'Slittlegem behind when fourth earlier this month. The latter is fancied to reverse running, however, as she won her maiden at this track in December. Derivatives has disappointed too many times to have any faith in, but Beverley maiden winner Winter Hill is interesting on his first start since August. GHOST TRAIN has separated a couple of poor efforts at Southwell with a second over 7f at Lingfield and, back on the Polytrack today, Mark Johnston's charge gets another chance to open his account.
