Mont Ras disappointed at Thirsk last time and may well be high enough in the weights now but Dubai Dynamo is not easily overlooked having gone close at Ripon last Sunday. There's a suspicion Shavansky and Dubai Hills save their best for the all-weather nowadays but the lightly-raced Roserrow looks to have a good chance of reversing recent running on the Polytrack with Mia's Boy. Volcanic Wind makes his seasonal return for a yard in good form and Uppercut is not out of this but a chance is taken on BASSETERRE. He 'll have come on for his reappearance fifth behind the progressive Boonga Roogeta at Newmarket and can take advantage of today's drop in class.
