Kimbali beat Whispered Times in a seller here recently but will find this tougher while Desert Creek finished a long way behind RELIGHT MY FIRE when the latter won over track and trip recently. Tim Easterby's charge also beat Zaitsev, who had scored here earlier, and can go in again dropping down a grade. Al Muheer is not without a chance in this company and neither is Majestic Dream off his current mark. It's tempting to consider Real Tigress is in the handicapper's grip but her earlier double came at this track so she's not easily dismissed.
