Fifth here on her debut, Bint Alakaaber has gone backwards in a couple of runs since and GLASTONBERRY is preferred. Although her sixth over 6f here last time is no great shakes, she's at least going in the right direction and won't have to improve much to get the better of this bunch. Arowana has shown little this season but her two-year-old form gives her chance, while Sleep Dance had Miakora behind when third at Bath on her debut and may prove best of the rest.
