Forecast

Dubai Rainbow (4/1), Aztec Eagle (9/2), Atlas (5/1), Spruce Meadows (11/2), Pepperoni Pete (6/1), Hit The Silk (6/1), Secret Wizard (6/1), Geological (8/1), Tintoretto (10/1), Beyond Dance (10/1), Shifted Strategy (11/1), High Altitude (12/1), Masalai (12/1), Red Avenger (12/1), Contrapposto (14/1), Have A Nice Day (20/1), Treble Cone (20/1), Trumps Up (20/1)

Verdict
DUBAI RAINBOW was coming along nicely in four runs last season and returns for her first start in a turf handicap with seemingly plenty going for her, not least the 3lb claimed off her back by the excellent Oisin Orr. She's got improvement in her and ought to go well. Aztec Eagle is another with scope for better, especially meeting this ground, while the likes of High Altitude, Atlas, Secret Wizard and Geological all arrive here in good tune.
