Fiction Or Fact got off the mark on his all-weather and handicap debut last Friday but it remains to be seen if he's as effective back on the turf. Priestley's Reward posted a better effort over 7f at Newcastle last month and should be thereabouts, while Fine Kingdom and Nayef Flyer look the types to improve now handicapping for the first time. Laurel Lad was a big disappointment on his handicap bow, but ANGINOLA went very close at Kempton on her first start in a nursery last week and gets the vote to go one better here.
