AUBRIETIA has won three of her last four starts and today's shorter trip should be no problem as she made all over 6f here last month. This looks no tougher despite a 7lb rise and she gets the nod. Royal Bajan and Gorgeous Goblin recorded their latest wins on Polytrack but both are course and distance winners and the former beat last year's winner Six Wives, Dorback and Rylee Mooch at Wolverhampton in January. My Son Max had Crown Choice well behind when scoring at the same track in October but makes his Fibresand debut.
