Verdict

Iffranesia handles the Fibresand but recorded her recent double on Polytrack. She beat Sir Geoffrey on both occasions but the latter came out best when they met on this surface earlier. Electric Qatar is chasing a hat-trick of course victories and makes more appeal than dual course and distance winner Thorpe Bay. The latter looks high enough in the weights now but Pull The Pin is capable of going close off his current mark. The once useful ROWE PARK hasn't won for some time but went very close over track and trip when beaten a nose by Rambo Will last time. Linda Jewell's veteran may yet have one more win in him and gets a tentative vote.
