Verdict

Free Entry looks sure to prove popular after a string of placed efforts on Turf and the Polytrack and should go close if handling this surface. But RITA'S BOY is the only one of these with experience of the Fibresand, finishing runner-up over track and trip in April. He gets the nod back at this venue for the first time since. Field Game's yard gets its fair share of winners here and he has plenty of scope with Blue Burmese perhaps best of the rest.
