      Verdict

      Course regular POINT ZERO comes out best at the weights and also has the strongest recent form with a success in novice company over track and trip. Another bold bid is expected representing Mick Appleby’s in-form yard. The veteran Divine Call has won three of only six outings on Fibresand but has no easy task on these terms and Diamond Pursuit may prove a bigger threat on her earlier third over 6f here. French debuts on the surface while Tasaaboq has never won here and has had plenty of chances though ran quite well at Wolverhampton on Friday.
