A handful of these have been in fine form over course and distance this winter and the booking of Mark Crehan could give NATIVE SILVER the edge this time. Bond Angel is another knocking at the door and could prove the biggest danger ahead of Delph Crescent, who bids to maintain his unbeaten record at the track.
Plenty have possibilities, but the vote goes to the well-bred SOROS, who rallied well for second behind a useful rival over course and distance in January and is a likely improver on his second start. The returning Carausius is feared most, though triple hurdle winner Raymond won a 1m 2f novice last month and is open to more progress on his step back up in trip.
The other previous Flat winner Deluxe Music needs watching in the market on her British/stable debut, while hurdle and dual bumper scorer Lantiern looks interesting on his switch to the Flat.
Ravenscar is bidding to complete a course hat-trick and ought to give it a good shot, but MUKHA MAGIC (NAP) has a touch of class about him and may well be too good for this field. Gay Kelleway’s five-year-old was behind Little India and slightly disappointing when a beaten favourite over C&D three weeks ago. However, he won very stylishly over 1m 4f here two starts ago and remains well handicapped on older form.
It’s easy to make a strong case for Legal Reform, who won in good style over course and distance last month and has plenty of scope for further progress on this surface. However, preference is for PORTUGUESEPRINCESS, who is now 6lb lower than when second in a higher-grade C&D contest in November and returns to Fibesand after two very respectable Polytrack runs last month. Love Your Work and Borsdane Wood also have possibilities.

An interesting race and this is a tight call between the three last-time-out winners. Hat-trick seeker BILL CODY is strongly respected in his bid to make it 4-6 at this track, while last month’s Kempton scorer Kangaroo Point could be a major force again if he handles this new surface.
With a few of these in good form and proven on the surface, this is pretty competitive for the grade. It took a while to find the key to SUSIE JAVEA, but she has been in excellent form over C&D in recent weeks and is selected to extend her winning spree.
My Brother Mike left it late in the day before trying his luck on this surface, but his C&D second to Susie Javea a fortnight ago was a good effort and he may provide the main threat to that filly again. Van Dijk and Three C’s are others to consider.
The lightly raced four-year-old Khatm has leading claims if he can repeat the form of his 1m 2f win at Chelmsford, but he has very different conditions to deal with on this Fibresand debut and slight preference is for GULLAND ROCK.
He recorded his ninth win when justifying support with authority over 1m here ten days ago. Most of the others have plenty to prove, but Baron Run is interesting on some old course form and needs checking in the market on his comeback.
