HAB REEH has won twice here over the minimum trip already this year but has no problems staying the extra furlong and with Serena Brotherton to do the steering the combination can take this despite a big weight. Dixie Gwalia was running in a first-time visor when successful at Lingfield a week ago and they didn't appear to have the same effect at Lingfield on Saturday while Friday's Kempton winner Michael's Nook is better over an extra furlong. Miserere Mei finished behind Hab Reeh last time but has the benefit of Simon Walker in the saddle and must be respected. Phils Wish made a very bright start on Polytrack here in November and has to be a major threat after another fine run on Saturday where he couldn't quite get to grips with Harvest Mist.
