Verdict

All of these are racing on the Fibresand for the first time. FISTFUL OF DOLLARS boasts the best form coming into the race as he went close at Wolverhampton recently with Diva Donkey well behind. Given one of his winning half-brothers scored twice at this track, Jamie Osborne's charge gets the nod. To The Sea showed her inexperience when fifth on her debut on Polytrack but should finish much closer here, while Lady Author and Duke Liam are others likely to improve if handling the surface.
