DUBAI SONNET is the only winner in the line-up and is taken to keep it that way despite the concession of weight all round. He absolutely hacked up here last month before disappointing on a return visit 12 days later. With connections clearly keen to run him so soon, that poor effort is best forgiven and he can confirm the previous good impression for a yard that has excelled in this sphere down the years. Karisma King showed some ability on debut but was a long way behind the selection last time and Echo Springs, a Quinn newcomer, and Eternal Vine, from a yard that do well in such races, might be worth a market check.
