Some guesswork needed as to who will handle this unique surface. Club House has the best form on show with a respectable fourth at Goodwood last time entitling him to consideration but a chance is taken on FIRST SERVE. She never threatened on her debut at Ripon but David Barron's impressive strike rate at this track suggests we may see a much better effort here. Bapak Bangsawan and Grandorio are steadily improving though Ingleby Symphony makes more appeal as she made up some late ground on her debut at this track albeit past already beaten horses. Tartania is a newcomer to note for any support in the betting.
