Arabian Heights won easily over 1m2f at Kempton five days ago but this looks a slightly better contest and there are enough doubts about him handling the longer trip to take him on. Alborz stays further but has never won on an artificial surface, though can't be ruled out and Spanish Plume is starting to come down the weights again. SILK ROUTE is still a maiden but can be forgiven her run at Kempton last month, her first since October. She was placed twice on the Flat this year and Giles Bravery wouldn't have kept her in training if he didn't think she was capable of finding a race.
