FLYING FANTASY appeared to benefit from first-time cheekpieces (worn again tonight) when comfortably winning an apprentice's handicap over this C&D and, with that confidence booster under his belt, he might be able to follow up off the same mark of 66. North Creek has been running consistently well off higher marks on the all-weather and makes plenty of appeal on his turf return, while Multicultural, who has blinkers equipped for her handicap debut, Call Me Grumpy and Stosur are just a few more with claims.
FLYING FANTASY escapes a penalty for last week's C&D apprentice win and should take a bit of stopping if the cheekpieces continue to have a positive effect. Call Me Grumpy has had a couple of short-priced reversals since his reappearance success but could bounce back here, while fellow 3-y-o Multicultural is a possible improver now handicapping in blinkers.
