Slip Of The Tongue's recent hat-trick included a victory over course and distance. Upped a further 5lb for his latest win, he may have enough improvement left to see off the challenge of course winners Picalily and Proud Times. The latter pair have both been raised 9lb but Jacobs Son has slipped down the weights since his last visit and should be thereabouts. WADAA has yet to race on Fibresand but beat a couple of subsequent winners in soft ground at Carlisle last month and James Tate's charge looks to have every chance in this company if taking to the surface.
