Dingaan went close when runner-up at Kempton last week, but that was over 7f and he's done all his Polytrack winning at Kempton and Lingfield so far. MEMPHIS MAN was beaten a length in fourth the last time he raced here and he's 2lb lower today. A repeat of that effort may be good enough in this company. Fluctuation posted a better effort on the Fibresand last time and Weetentherty could figure on his best form as could Namir.
