QUITE A THING is well ahead on official ratings and can take advantage of the favourable terms. She's a dual winner on Polytrack, but Sir Mark Prescott's runners invariably handle the Fibresand and she gets the vote to return to winning ways. The consistent Sonko and Scrooby Doo are both winners on this surface, though the latter comes out best at the weights after scoring over C&D on her latest outing, but the remaining trio have plenty to find if they're to get involved in the finish.
