APACHE RISING stands out in this and should oblige despite carrying a penalty for last week's victory over track and trip. He scored by six lengths on that occasion and will take all the beating if running up to a similar level. Mudaawem was fancied to do better when beaten three lengths at Lingfield last time and will need to step up on that to figure on his Fibresand debut. Bougaloo has been placed over 6f at this track and may just have the edge on Leicester maiden winner Firstkissoflove.
