Gabrial's Hope finished last on his only previous run on this surface and has been beaten in sellers and claimers on the Polytrack lately, though this isn't much better. Auden makes a swift reappearance after second over a mile here on Tuesday and is a course and distance winner but the vote goes to TIME SQUARE in the hope that he handles Fibresand. He was just beaten off today's mark at Kempton eight days ago. Marina Ballerina may be best of the rest, though Amtired and Reach The Beach were both beaten favourites last time.
