The career of Jackson is fascinating, starting off in Brazil and travelling about the Emirates before landing on these shores but this isn't a film and even the Fairy Godmother couldn't magic a race out of him at present. Lady Norlela is really harshly evaluated by the handicapper 11lb higher after a runner-up effort here and is hard to back on that basis. ROSEWIN gets the vote as she is in consistent form and with the trip and ground to suit, she looks the most viable choice. Leaving Alone could be a threat nicely positioned in the weights with the weight for age allowance. Diktalina has taken to hurdling and would perhaps prefer a longer trip on the flat to get involved, whilst Dimashq is a previous winner over course and distance and has a chance.
