Verdict

LAYALI DUBAI improved out of all recognition on Polytrack in the autumn, completing a four-timer at Lingfield and Wolverhampton. She made her debut here a fortnight ago but was never in the hunt after being badly impeded and can gain compensation. Moonlight Dash has been running really well without quite getting there and can reverse earlier form with Mawhub as can dual Longchamp winner Funon, who was also behind that winner here last month and can do better. Storm Belt stepped up to this trip for the first time and stayed on strongly to finish close-up behind surprise winner Udabaa last time but the victor had a bit in hand and should confirm the form. Ukrainian went well last time and, along with the lightly-raced Inthar, makes this a competitive finale.
