Bo Samraan had a fine performance at Southwell last time - and can build in the Betway EBF Buccaneer Conditions Stakes.
The ability to handle Fibresand can be a key factor at the venue, and Mark Johnston's charge showed it poses few problems for him when held in second behind Grazeon Roy.
Bo Samraan tried to make every yard over 12 furlongs, but found the winner too speedy.
He was conceding 10lb, so a length-and-a-quarter defeat does not read too badly, and conditions today give him a handy pull with all but Sevenna Star.
Bo Samraan and that rival are evenly matched on the figures, but preference is for a runner proven to handle the surface.
Queen Of Kalahari is another with strong Southwell form.
Les Eyre took her to Newcastle and while she was far from disgraced in third, she did not show her best on the different surface.
While still on a perch of 63, she looks competitive in the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap.
