A handicap rating of 84 marks out EPIC VOYAGE in this. But he gets only a tentative vote given he's dropping back in distance and having his first start on Fibresand. Lord Clyde is another making his debut on the surface but has shown little so far this year and Scoreline has the better recent form. The latter has made the frame on his last couple of starts while Reet Thicknstrong finished third in a handicap at Redcar last time. Templar Boy was still well beaten when third at this track and the newcomer Oasis Mirage could prove a bigger threat.
