Flying Pickets is a multiple course winner but over 7f and so is Imprimis Tagula while Musnad may be better over a longer trip. Bold Marc had Fluctuation a long way behind when scoring over track and trip in November and has decent claims but CALEDONIA PRINCE is preferred. He's taken to overcome a slight disadvantage at the weights as he acts on this surface and is dropped in class. Creek Falcon has scope for improvement if taking to the Fibresand and the same comment applies to Electrician after his latest second in similar company at Lingfield.
