Pearl Acclaim has to race off a higher mark back on the all-weather but all three wins on an artificial surface have been on the Fibresand including last year's renewal. He's not out of this while Tan has won three times since joining Mick Appleby in May and a recent second at Chelmsford suggests he can go well again. Kodi Beach returns to this venue for the first time since winning a maiden over track and trip while Warrior's Valley was narrowly beaten when last on this surface earlier in the year but BELLEVARDE gets another chance. Placed at Wolverhampton the last twice, she drops down a grade for this and found only one too good on a previous visit to this venue back in April.
