A couple of these have every chance back on the Fibresand. Napinda is one as she was narrowly beaten here before scoring over track and trip in February. But she hasn't threatened in a couple of starts on Polytrack since and finished behind fifth-placed LUV U WHATEVER at Kempton last time. The latter had previously won over course and distance in a faster time than Napinda achieved and Jo Hughes' charge gets the nod in the opener. Scepticism and Loki's Strike could figure if taking to the Fibresand and Ivy Port finish closer on her handicap debut.
