Upholland opened his account over track and trip last month and makes more appeal than Frankthetank, who has so far proved best on the Fibresand and is upped 12lb for his latest win at Southwell. Lone Warrior is struggling to reproduce his best but Jaahiez got off the mark with a maiden victory at Lingfield recently and should make another bold bid. FITZGERALD also goes handicapping for the first time after scoring over track and trip. Marco Botti's colt coasted to a six length victory and there should be plenty more to come from him.
