Hannahs Turn is unbeaten on the Fibresand at Southwell but has yet to figure in four starts on Polytrack. She did beat Sewn Up and Sylvia Pankhurst at Southwell and the latter has won here since while the former got the better of both Blazing Knight and Midnight Dream when scoring over track and trip earlier in the year. Bluegrass Blues and Bold Prediction have both shown a preference for this surface having disappointed on the turf last time and Hard Walnut has strong claims on the back of another win at Lingfield. EQUITY RISK scored at the first time of asking over course and distance in November and Kevin Ryan's colt gets the vote to follow up in this with normal improvement.
