Al AQABAH won over C&D in October and was only headed close home by Rezwaan on her recent return to the track. Winning partner Adam Beschizza is back on board here and his 5lb claim can give Brian Gubby's mare that bit extra needed to get her head back in front. Serious Drinking and Master Of Dance have a bit to find with the selection on latest running and recent course winner Ermyntrude will need to improve again off a higher mark. Florio Vincitore and One Oi look best of the rest.
