In depth

Verdict

Ghasabah, a daughter of Dansili and half-sister to a winning miler, can only improve on her debut third at Kempton but ARBEEL sets a decent standard on her latest second at Lingfield, where she would probably have won had she not had to switch around horses approaching the final furlong. Peter Chapple-Hyam's filly can go one better here. Arcadian Legend is closely related to a couple of winners and the Noseda newcomer may prove the pick of the remainder.
