Verdict

Roger Varian has a good strike rate on the Fibresand and TAKREYM is expected to handle the surface. A winner at Windsor, he ran well in better company at Haydock on his handicap bow and can land this. Dutch Rifle is also lightly-raced but was well beaten at Haydock on her comeback having won on the Polytrack last year. Mishrif has a shout off a 3lb higher mark than when scoring over track and trip in April while Sofias Number One won last year's renewal off a similar mark and can also figure.
