Dubai Celebration is a half-brother to the excellent Kyllachy, but he has given the indication that his mark may be a little high at present. No Poppy has the assistance of Paul Hanagan but she has shown a preference for right-handed tracks and races off a career high mark. Swiss Dream was thought good enough to race in the Queen Mary at Ascot in June and isn't disgraced by her last two starts as the form from those looks solid. She looks a big threat to our selection, EXPOSE. Richard Hughes misses the Breeders' Cup and having ridden this colt to win last time out this looks one of his better bets to add to his bid for the jockeys' title. The mark of Expose looks favourable for a first start in a nursery and as he is still progressing looks the one to side with. Dozy Joe is looking for a hat-trick and is an obvious danger off just 5lb higher than his most recent win. It's You Again and Brave Battle could fight for the frame places but Expose gets the vote to score.
