Verdict

SIR GEOFFREY looks to have the best chance of the Dandy Nicholls quartet. He beat stablemate Silaah over C&D on his Fibresand debut and there should be more to come on this surface. Cape Vale disappointed over 5f recently, with Luscivious further behind, but that may have come too soon after winning over the 6f trip here. Green Manalishi, Mo Mhuirnin and Waveband have yet to encounter Fibresand but the latter makes most appeal if taking to the surface.
