LAYALI DUBAI has shown progressive form since returning from a four-month lay-off. She won eased down at Wolverhampton a week ago and can shrug off a penalty and go in again here. Semeen disappointed last time having won at Newmarket before that with Eagle Nebula behind but Kelpie Blitz had won twice at Brighton before failing to figure in better company at Kempton a fortnight ago. Hawaana posted a better effort over C&D last week but Solfilia makes more appeal on her latest second at Leicester and looks capable of going close off her current mark.
