Verdict

Simply Black has the best overall form hence a handicap mark of 72 which would normally be enough to land a maiden at this level. But she has no experience of Fibresand so BLACK VALE is preferred. The latter has posted his best efforts so far at this track and today's shorter trip will suit having finished runner-up over 6f here in August. Brave Imp finished ahead of Meadway at Beverley last time and makes most appeal of the remainder.
