ITS YOU AGAIN ran two very good races here in November before scoring in a maiden auction at Lingfield. He couldn't act on Fibresand last time but can get back to winning ways on this surface. Captain Loui arrives in good form but has a little to find on official ratings and a bigger threat may emerge in the shape of Captain Dimitrios, who races here for the first time after showing good form at Kempton. Sugar Beet's only run on an artificial surface resulted in a victory at Lingfield in September and she followed up a week later at Folkestone. But she hasn't been seen since and may just need this to put her straight.
