Verdict

Exotic Guest got off the mark over 5f at Newcastle earlier this month and his stable is in cracking form. He's only gone up 5lb and must have a decent chance of following up but may be too close in the weights to AL UDEID. Kevin Ryan's grey wasn't at his best at Newmarket last time but this represents a drop in class and he's run well off higher marks this year. Dodina is fancied to reverse Kempton running with Truly Madly on slightly better terms but this looks a tough ask for Desert Command and Indian Affair.
