Island Remede has form in soft ground but in lesser company than this. Notarised was tailed off when encountering heavy going at Sandown before winning at Bath while Jelly Fish made a winning handicap debut on the Polytrack. Devilment is another recent winner on the all-weather but preference is for stablemate ANGLOPHILE. The latter had a handful of subsequent winners behind when scoring at Salisbury in August and he should go very close if coping with today's surface. The same proviso applies to Alisios, who makes most appeal of the remainder.
