Ishiamiracle's wins have been recorded on both Fibresand and heavy ground and MUHANDIS looks a safer proposition. He was only beaten a head over C&D last time with Spin Again, who runs in the opening race, back in fourth and should go very close with a similar effort. Dvinsky pops up at this level when he feels like it and Lady Mango is back on the same mark as when scoring at Kempton in July. Mr Knightley has slipped down the weights but has done all his winning in plating company so far and Jonnie Skull was engaged to run at Kempton yesterday.
