A handful of these have been threatening a return to winning ways but it's JEBEL TARA who has been getting the job done. Three of this season's four victories have been at this track, including his latest when scoring over a mile. There may just be enough left in the tank to hold off today's rivals and he gets the nod. Circuitous and Weetentherty went close over 6f last time while Dhhamaan has been placed over today's trip recently. Amno Dancer and Goninodaethat could also figure if in the mood and could prove best of the rest.
