Cape Of Storms won twice over C&D early this year and will have come on for his recent comeback run in much better company than this. Recent Wolverhampton winner Global Village arrives in fine form, though this is his first start on Fibresand and a chance is taken on SOOPACAL. He's a winner over 5f here, but went close when runner-up over track and trip a fortnight ago and is taken to go one better in this lower grade. Brio and Boy The Bell are others to consider in a wide-open claimer.
