Plenty of these know their way round this course, not least top weight Mingun Bell. He's only 1lb higher than when scoring over 7f here in July and should figure but DUBAWI ISLAND may prove too good. The latter is back here for the first time since landing his maiden by seven lengths and there should be more to come from James Tate's three-year-old. Dubaianswer is a dual C&D winner who won't be faraway but Beautiful Day is 9lb higher than the latest of his three wins on the Fibresand. For What was raised a harsh-looking 10lb for his earlier C&D victory and looks high enough in the weights along with Kung Hei Fat Choy, while the in-form Desert Creek is an unknown on the surface.
