Verdict

Plenty with a shout in this given most act on the Fibresand. But DUSKY DAWN drops down a grade having gone close over a mile here in December and Alan Swinbank’s mare may prove good enough. Custard The Dragon has won three times here over the winter and has beaten Harwoods Star, Unnoticed, Among Angels, Boots And Spurs and Showing Off along the way. He’s upped a further 4lb but course regular Alpha Tauri is now 9lb higher than when scoring here last month. Vroom is another recent course winner and beat a couple of these in the process while Ticks The Boxes is not out of this either.
