Mark Johnston's Centrifugal won a couple of minor events last month but was well beaten at Kempton last week and doesn't have the best of the draw. SPIRITUALITY was having only his eighth start and third on the surface when gaining a comfortable victory over the C&D last week. He's only been raised 3lb and with Luke Dempsey again able to claim 10lb a quick double looks on the cards. Captain Joy won as a juvenile here and was having just his third subsequent run when staying on strongly behind Russian Soul over a mile here last month. He'll be finishing strongly but could find this on the short side nowadays. Curia Regis was behind the selection last week and is badly drawn but Springinmystep makes the journey from the UK and though this will be his all-weather debut his trainer is very adept at placing his horses.
