Verdict

John Dunlop's stable is yet to hit form so Joyful Spirit, blinkered for the first time after finishing fourth at Goodwood, may be worth opposing again. Aiaam Al Wafa won over this trip at Windsor before finishing second over 1m4f at Wolverhampton but is climbing the weights and last year's Southwell scorer Chrissycross was well beaten on her reappearance at Bath. ARABIC showed promise in his first season and was eased after being hampered on his comeback run at Kempton. By Dubai Destination, he should be suited by today's longer trip and gets a tentative vote with Fallon on board again though Autarch is also interesting taking a big drop in class.
