Dustland Fairytale was sent over from County Donegal to finish third at Wolverhampton two weeks ago but only finished a couple of lengths ahead of BELLE PARK, who was making her seasonal reappearance and is 8lb better off back on turf. Ryan While claims 7lb off Karen George's mare and she may well be good enough to score ahead of last month's Firefly and the enigmatic Spinning Ridge. Crucis Abbey has been in decent form on the all-weather and looks best of the rest ahead of Kempton fourth Finlodex.
