Verdict

Dubai Bay should finish a lot closer in this lesser company on her first start since April while Steel Stockholder separated a couple of modest efforts with a narrow defeat over C&D and could figure. Clumber Place has yet to show any benefit for a slide down the weights but Gulf Storm showed a bit more in a lower-grade contest at Beverley last time. DRIVE HOME gets the speculative vote as January's Wolverhampton winner won twice on Turf last term and will have come on for his recent comeback.
