POLSKI MAX ploughed the mud at Pontefract three weeks ago to take the runners-up spot. There's a good chance he'll handle the Fibresand and he's just preferred to Marchwood. The latter has gone close on his last two starts on Turf and should be thereabouts but Ryedale Valley was still beaten four lengths when finishing second over C&D on his debut. Secret Destination was also a runner-up over track and trip last time but collateral form leaves him something to find with the selection, but the newcomers Wellingrove and Kalicamix are worth a second glance in the betting.
