Aspectus is too inconsistent to have much trust in even though his best form is good enough to land this, while it was an amateur race at Salisbury that Cultural Desert won last time and this is tougher. Salient has solid claims but there's a suspicion he's best on sharper tracks and Kavachi is another to consider having slipped down to a tempting mark. However, a chance is taken on SPA'S DANCER who should start at a decent price. He's dropped in class for the first time since winning his maiden last September and has placed form since that entitles him to go close here.
