Formscan By Gary Carson - SHAKE THE BUCKET has been raised 7lb since his win over course and distance and it looks a good move to claim off him now. He has run really well on his two subsequent starts and was just denied by a couple of necks on his last start over a longer trip. That showed he is still up to winning off this mark and with young Luke Dempsey taking 7lb off his back now he has to have a big shout. Alghanem also has a good record around here and ran well despite a 12lb rise for his course and distance win when chasing home Asian Wing last time. With another pound for that effort, however, the handicapper may have his measure. Shukhov bounced back to form here last time with a wind op given as the reason for his improvement. He still looks competitive off a 6lb higher mark. English import Hurricane In Dubai showed some decent form last summer and is an interesting contender on his first start for David Marnane.
