ARBEEL couldn't cope with the step up to Group 3 company at Goodwood in August. But her earlier third in a decent maiden at the same course is the best form on offer and Peter Chapple-Hyam's filly is taken to make a winning reappearance. Callmeakhab and Bousatet never threatened on their respective comebacks though much better is expected from that pair and it would be no surprise to see Lexi's Dancer improve on her debut run at Haydock. Sixties Queen and Clary could also go well along with November's runner-up at Newmarket, Shamiana.
