Tan acts on the surface but was due to run at Beverley yesterday. Crosse Fire is a prolific winner on the Fibresand and cannot be easily dismissed having beaten both Warrior's Valley and Samovar when scoring here on his penultimate start while recent Lingfield winner Requited landed a novice race at the track on his only previous visit. But a chance is taken on WRENTHORPE handling the surface given he’s now back on a winning mark and just missed out at Nottingham on his latest outing.
