Jabarout has been in good form over 7f recording wins at Wolverhampton and Lingfield recently and has obvious claims if taking to the Fibresand. Eponina was third over 6f here last time and has won over further before while the veteran Alpha Tauri has recorded all 11 wins to date at this venue though his last success was back in March of last year. Tellovoi is another course and distance winner that can pop-up when the mood takes him but a chance is taken on BOLD SPIRIT bouncing back with a 7lb claimer on board today having won off a 6lb higher mark over track and trip back in March.
