The longer trip should suit NEYTIRI as she drops in grade. Ralph Beckett's filly has put in two solid maiden runs at Kempton since a quiet Salisbury debut and she has stamina in her pedigree to suggest this trip will suit. Fire Crystal is beautifully-bred and she took a step in the right direction last time, whilst stablemate Knox Overstreet was made favourite for a good Newmarket seller in August but hasn't been seen since. Chagal joins Irish recruit Brand Bob and the 63-rated A Little Bit Dusty on the list of dangers.
