The four-year-old Mondlicht makes his belated racecourse debut and the betting may give the best clue to his chances. However, he's giving plenty of weight to the younger PLAYTOTHEWHISTLE, who showed a big improvement to take second over 7f here last month and is expected to appreciate this longer trip. Lynngale also made the frame on this surface back in November and she should give a good account but Seaham's best efforts of last year came on fast ground and he makes his Fibresand debut today.
