Tarbawi was beaten a short-head in a handicap last time and is a leading contender back in this company but SERENITY SPA is taken to improve past him. The latter finished runner-up in an Ascot maiden on her debut and is also preferred to Floating Along, fourth on her introduction at Newbury. Secret Missile has been placed at Wolverhampton and Desert Sunrise made the frame on the Turf at Lingfield on her debut while the newcomer Bastion is worth a second glance as he's out of a prolific mare and can include Group winners among his relatives.
