Quality Art was just beaten over this trip at Kempton three weeks ago and finished a length-and-a-half ahead of the front-running Johnny Splash, The latter is a pound better off but that might not be enough to turn the tables. Dorback is hard to catch right nowadays but has won on Polytrack, unlike the returning Trending. DISHY GURU wasn't disgraced at Kempton after winning over course and distance a month ago. He's not badly treated back here and can resume winning ways as Ceelo has become disappointing and sports headgear for the first time.
