APOPHENIA is a half-sister to stablemate and decent handicap sprinter Polski Max. The latter won his maiden at this track and Richard Fahey's newcomer has little to beat in this. Moss Quito should have come on for his first start for over year when third at Wolverhampton. He makes his Fibresand debut today, but both The Dandy Yank and Highland Princess have failed to figure on previous starts at this track. Jalebi has had a couple of outings at Kempton but hasn't raced since July.
