SHAWKANTANGO is taken to keep his unbeaten record on this surface intact. He looked a real Fibresand specialist when winning his first start over C&D and has proved that assumption right with three subsequent victories. Derek Shaw's charge is preferred to Six Wives, who won twice on the turf last month and scored here in January, but Sleepy Blue Ocean has a bit to find with the selection and is closely matched with Bookiesindex Boy on earlier running here. C&D winner Tillys Tale looks a threat with a 7lb apprentice reducing his burden and Boogie Waltzer has claims back on a winning mark.
