Yasir beat Monzino a neck over 1m4f here earlier in the month and both have something to prove over this longer trip. There are no such stamina concerns regarding Mr Burbidge. He landed a hat trick when beating the re-opposing Scribe over 2m at Wolverhampton last time but has yet to race on Fibresand. OUTRAGEOUS REQUEST also arrives in fine form having won over hurdles before scoring on the level at Lingfield. He's gone close at this track before and gets the vote raised only 3lb for his latest victory.
