Verdict

RED PRIMO faded badly on his handicap debut at Newcastle. But had won his first couple of starts on this surface including a classified event by eight lengths. The return to Fibresand should bring out the best in Alan McCabe's colt and he gets the nod. Injaz has been placed over 6f here and attempts this longer trip for the first time, though Wildcat Lass is preferred given she won her maiden here and was placed over a mile last time. Outbacker and Hickster remain in the handicapper's grip on the evidence of recent form.
