Requisite beat previous Southwell winner Mottley Crewe by a head over 6f here last month and they fight it out again on the same terms today, but this season's dual turf winner Volcanic Dust would be a stronger fancy if she wasn't returning from a lay-off. Estonia landed a C&D double in November but is up in class, while Lucky Art has ran poorly since scoring here in October so WHAT ABOUT YOU makes more appeal. He's yet to race over today's trip but has plenty of early pace and today's drop in grade could see Richard Fahey's charge return to winning ways.
