A strong tempo likely here which will suit BARALAKA. Sir Mark Prescott's gelding has plenty of weight to shoulder but he has looked an improver since stepping up in trip this season and one gets the feeling that there is plenty more to come. Green Wadi's Absinthe run was a step back in the right direction, Dishdasha is fairly-treated now returned to the level over a trip that suits, whilst Barliffey is consistent but may struggle over this longer trip. Ignore Shy's latest run and she becomes a player, a comment that also applies to Outland (probably want more rain) and the strong stayer Dream Spinner. At a price Aalya could run well off her light weight now dropped in trip and in the weights after a break.
