Five Hearts is sure to be popular here after her latest second to Uncle Roger at Kempton but this will be her first taste of Fibresand. Alan Swinbank's runners are always worth a second look here and the lightly-raced Linroyale Boy showed promise in a couple of runs at the track last winter but it must be worth taking a chance on a return to form for MAGIC HAZE. Sally Hall's charge won off a 3lb higher mark over C&D in January and was second over hurdles at Sedgefield in August. David's Folly may prove the pick of the remainder.
