A competitive handicap on paper with plenty holding claims, but MUNAASEB is the selection on account of his winning reappearance at Lingfield. Ed Dunlop's charge ran out an impressive eight-length winner on that occasion and there should be plenty more to come now handicapping. Silver Alliance, Instance and Green Apple are other lightly-raced sorts with scope for improvement, while Cinderkamp, Local Singer, Dozy Joe and Forty Proof are all winners making their seasonal debuts. Fantasy Fry seems best on the Fibresand however.
