Captain Bellamy poses the question of whether his recent wins at Southwell are down to normal improvement or a preference for Fibresand. His inferior form on other surfaces strongly suggest it could be the latter and SUSAN STROMAN makes more appeal. She produced her best effort so far when winning over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last month and Ed Dunlop's filly is fancied to return to winning ways back on this surface. Reillys Daughter is making steady progress and this longer trip may bring further improvement and Secret Edge cannot be easily dismissed on his Polytrack debut.
