None of these have experience of the Fibresand but Knockacullion has placed on Polytrack on a couple of occasions, albeit without threatening the winner. Angel Lane posted a better effort at Beverley last time and is preferred to Ideal Destiny but a couple of the newcomers take the eye. End Over End should go well representing Archie Watson but Simon Crisford’s in-form yard also has an impressive strike rate at this venue and CLASSIC DESIGN (NAP), the first foal of a winner on the all-weather, gets the vote to make a winning start.
