Verdict

A winner over 6f here, Reve Du Jour failed to hold off the attentions of BELLA OPHELIA over C&D last week and there was only going to be one winner once Hughie Morrison's progressive filly hit the front. It could be a similar story today and she's worth sticking with dropping down a grade. Scrooby Doo has her first start for a new yard having won over 6f here in October, while Code Six, Chester'slittlegem and Chapellerie have all been beaten in handicaps since scoring on the Polytrack and make their debuts on the Fibresand today, along with Dawn Lightning.
