ALUBARI looks ready for this step up in distance after his latest outing over 1m2f at Kempton. He was spotted staying on in the closing stages after losing his position and today's trip should bring out the best in him. He can take this. No Rain is similar in that she too could benefit from a test of stamina after a couple of races at around a mile. She is a half-sister to a couple of 1m4f winners and should figure, while Faith Jicaro had shaped much better over today's trip before tailing off over 1m6f last time.
