SPICE FAIR didn't fair badly in a hot contest won by Sun Central over course and distance earlier this month. Now back on a winning mark, Mark Usher's chestnut can come out on top in this lower grade with Body Language looking too high in the weights at present. Achalas disappointed at Windsor last time and may have trouble lasting home here. He also has something to find with Crimson Knight on the form book while Porcini reserves her best for the Polytrack, though Dunhoy has a chance on the best of last year's form.
