Jeannie Galloway isn't in the best of form and Shesastar needs to improve on recent efforts. William Muir sends Alice's Dancer on the long haul from Lambourn with Graham Lee booked and recent performances have been satisfactory but MAGIC DESTINY makes greater appeal in what may well turn out to be a tactical contest. The Burke inmate had been off course for over 260 days when sent straight to the Carlisle Bell recently, delivering an excellent effort in finishing fifth of 15 behind Silvery Moon, only beaten just over a couple of lengths - he has every chance here.
