Pigeon Hollow finished ahead of BOOK KEEPER when the pair met here but we confidently expect that form to be reversed, with Mahmood Al Zarooni's charge taken to get off the mark. Ahmed Ajtebi wasn't at his best when getting this Oasis Dream colt in all sorts of trouble last time and our feeling is he should have won. With softening conditions likely to pose no problem and, hopefully, lessons learned, Book Keeper can gain his revenge on 70-rated Pigeon Hollow. Il Battista is tried in a visor and is already rated a pound better than Mick Channon's runner so must be considered, but Swift Alhaarth could be the one for second. Mark Johnston's runner will relish the conditions and his two-year-olds are coming to hand. Orange Ketchup was down the field in a maiden that's worked out and isn't omitted from calculations along with mildly progressive Zakon.
