This is a much better race than the seller that India's Song won at Lingfield last time. Spanish Plume needs a longer trip than this but Mr Red Clubs enters the reckoning as he's been in good form over a slightly shorter distance here in his last couple of starts. Honey Of A Kitten has ground to make up on Spanish Plume on their run together here last month while the market will probably tell us what's expected from Outlaw Torn, who can be a law unto himself, and Pravda Street is only a plater nowadays. DUBAI CELEBRATION was runner-up in a similar contest over track and trip last month and, though a couple of pounds higher, can go one better under Connor Beasley.
