Zephyr showed little in either start last year but Outback Warrior's best effort to date came at this track. However, the latter was still beaten seven lengths when making the frame here and this looks between the remaining pair. Bobby Benton has been getting steadily closer on the Polytrack and should be thereabouts again if taking to the surface, but TARRAFAL looks the safer bet. He also makes his Fibresand debut after a narrow defeat at Wolverhampton and his yard has won three of the four renewals of this contest.
