Goal has dropped down the weights but is making a meal of getting his head back in front. He found one too good for the third successive time at this track on his latest start and DUBAI CELEBRATION looks a safer bet. The latter scored at Musselburgh before his latest fourth in a higher grade handicap at the same track and can go in again off the same mark here. Community has been running well over shorter trips and C&D winner Kyle Of Bute is capable of landing this if on one of his going days. Aragorn Rouge makes most appeal of the remainder.
