Most are course regulars and Duke Of Firenze finished in front of the disappointing Giogiobbo when fourth here last time. The latter had earlier found CENTURION SONG too good when Brian Meehan’s charge scored over track and trip on his Fibresand debut and he looks worth sticking with on this surface. Gossip narrowly beat Red Stripes in a lower grade here earlier in the month while both Alsvinder and Fantasy Keeper were recently placed over 6f at the track. A prolific winner elsewhere on the all-weather, You're Cool has yet to score on the Fibresand.
