Spirit Rider continues to go backwards and is hard to fancy unless the longer trip brings about improvement. Common Courtesy was tailed off on her reappearance over 1m4f while Szabo's Art follows her yard's usual model of stepping up in trip on her return to action. Don Padeja wasn't helped when hampered on his comeback and better is expected form him while Entrenched and Desert Revolution are newcomers to keep an eye on. AKEED DUBAWI was doing his best work at the finish on his debut over a mile at Newmarket. He wasn't far behind Top Set, who runs in the previous race, so a good run from the latter would boost confidence in Willie Haggas' colt.
