Turfcom race preview

(6) FIFTH ELEMENT is the standout choice on form after consecutive second-place finishes. The addition of blinkers should keep her mind on the job and may eke out enough improvement to see her promise rewarded. (2) QATAR CUP is likely to fare better over this trip so could pose a threat. (9) SISTAH and (8) DIAMOND CITY have similar form and credentials while (10) JAYLAN makes most appeal of the two newcomers.
