Verdict

Activate had little chance at the weights with Stand Guard on his only previous outing on this surface and should be thereabouts today. Scribe also handles the track and has leading claims after landing a couple of lowly handicaps at Wolverhampton last month. DONTPAYTHEFERRYMAN has won five times on the Fibresand, albeit over shorter trips, but today's distance won't be a problem for the winning hurdler and Brian Ellison's charge gets the nod. Underwritten has a chance on today's terms but is having his first start on Fibresand and has been off the track since September.
