Verdict

Plenty of horses handle this unique surface but occasionally one comes along who seems to relish it and MYBOYALFIE gave that impression when scoring over 7f on his Fibresand debut. Already victorious at Chepstow last year, John Jenkin's charge had a couple of subsequent winners including the re-opposing Mazovian behind last month, with Ezra Church also well beaten, and looks capable of better still. Saying that, Imprimis Tagula will be no pushover as the three horses immediately behind him when winning a seller at this track last time have all won since, while Andiamo Via and Katy's Secret have both scored over 6f here recently and should go well again.
