Outlaw Torn rarely runs a bad race but the top weight has almost three lengths to find with the more progressive PIM STREET on their run together here last Saturday. David O'Meara's gelding has a penalty to carry but may be up to the task. Dubai Celebration has been placed four times this year and is gradually edging towards a fair mark. He should be thereabouts again but Beverley third Hail Bold Chief has his first run on an artificial surface for more than four years. Bitaphon has won three times of the Fibresand but is still awaiting a first victory on this faster surface while Attain's recent second came in an even weaker affair.
