PSYCHIC'S DREAM is getting closer and was beaten less than a length in a blanket finish at Brighton last time. She had New Leyf and recent dual winner Emiratesdotcom behind on that occasion and Marco Botti's filly looks up to winning off her current mark. It's too soon to write off course winner Intercept despite disappointing on his handicap debut at Newmarket, but Aristeia has gone up 9lb for her win at Salisbury in August and will find this tougher. Requisite makes a quick reappearance having finished third behind Seek The Fair Land over 7f at Lingfield on Wednesday and makes more appeal than recent plating winner Scarlet Rocks.
