Messageinabottle was possibly an unlucky loser when easy to back on her reappearance over 7f at Redcar. She had the fancied Thorntoun Lady behind in fifth and should make a bold bid to go one better. But MUKHABARAT is almost certainly better than he showed when beaten at odds-on at Chepstow nine days ago. He pulled hard in that contest and didn't get home but the fitting of a hood should help him on that score and he drops back a furlong. Pearl Style could be a newcomer worth noting as there is plenty of speed in his pedigree but the others are easy to overlook.
