Alghanem won well enough over a shorter trip here last week but a 12lb rise still looks a bit harsh. Saint By Day has six lengths to make up with the former but may well do so on today's revised terms though ASIAN WING makes more appeal. The latter has a more reasonable 7lb rise to contend with after also scoring at last week's meeting and Takashi Kodama's three-year-old has the scope to follow up. Whiteside is preferred to Days Ahead of the remainder.
