There was probably just a little too much give in the ground for Dubai Media at York last week. Despite top weight, she's have every chance here if reproducing the form of an earlier second to Anne Of Kiev at Haydock. Desert Poppy continues to edge up the weights but has run well in defeat at Goodwood and Pontefract recently, while it would be no surprise to see Glas Burn do better now dropped in class though she finished behind the consistent Carrignavar at Warwick last month. After only four runs there should be more to come from GUIDED MISSILE, however, and Andrew Balding's three-year-old can defy a recent 9lb rise in the weights and add to previous victories at Kempton and Chepstow.
