FIERY SPICE has recorded a couple of course and distance wins in the process of notching a hat-trick. He’s penalised for his latest success here last week but has not stopped improving yet. Camargue has struggled in handicaps so far but has slipped down the weights and debuts on this surface along with Hamilton winner Reckless Serenade while Grecian Divine won twice when trained in Ireland last year. Erissimus Maximus won at Newcastle in January and an earlier close-up third on the Fibresand suggests he’s the main danger to the selection.
Grecian Divine (IRE) 25-1 (9-4) Dwelt, close up in 5th, ridden over 1f out, not trouble leaders, 4th of 5, 4 1/2l behind Juan Horsepower (8-12) at Lingfield 5f hcp (3) pol in Mar.

Reckless Serenade (IRE) 12-1 (9-4) Tracked leaders, ridden and lost place over 1f out, weakened final furlong, last of 10, 9 1/4l behind Mr Pocket (9-5) at Wolverhampton 6f (5) pol in Nov.
