Abi Scarlet is hard to catch right nowadays but she was at her best when scoring over 6f here last time. She's yet to win over a longer distance but Repetition landed an easier contest over track and trip by four lengths on his latest start and should figure once again. It's been a while since Piceno was successful on the Fibresand but he won at Catterick in April while Comrade Bond ended a long losing run at Yarmouth recently but has yet to win anywhere else. TWO MOONS never figured at Pontefract on his handicap debut but had three subsequent winners behind when winning his maiden over course and distance in March. Tony Coyle's charge can return to winning ways back here.
