Stoney Quine found the Fibresand to her liking when scoring at Southwell on Tuesday but this is tougher. Goadby has slid down the weights and nearly took advantage at Catterick last time while Beautiful Stranger may do better on his Polytrack debut. Bazooka could figure having his first start in a handicap but CAESARS GIFT is preferred. The latter was beaten a length at Kempton last week and can race off the same mark today.
