GORGEOUS GENERAL posted one of his better efforts dropped back down to this level at Newcastle two days ago. He landed a double on the Fibresand back in February and looks set for a return to winning ways. Tease Maid can figure back over 6f having placed over track and trip back in April while the veteran Space War has subsequently scored at Nottingham having also won here in May. Mad Endeavour and the less exposed Grimsdyke are others to consider if taking to the Fibresand.
