It's hard to make a case for the two older horses here as Phoenix Flame looks no nearer to opening her account and the newcomer Moorgate Lass makes no appeal on breeding. Scatter Dice has been placed in both starts on Polytrack and is preferred to Gabrial's Lexi on what she's shown so far, but a tentative vote goes to CAPE SAFARI. She never looked like catching Dubai Sunshine when second over C&D last time but her experience of the Fibresand should be of benefit here so James Tate's filly gets the nod.
