Sheila's Buddy has every chance off today's mark dropping down a grade while Sea Fever was only beaten a nose at this track when sent off favourite earlier this month. He'll be looking to make amends but LAYALI DUBAI makes more appeal. She was having her first start since June when just failing to catch Tis Rock 'N' Roll over C&D recently and the Godolphin filly is taken to confirm running with Xinbama and Sir Trevor and go one better in this.
