Verdict

Fancy Music is a talented but quirky galloper who looks capable of breaking through to Class 3. Matthew Poon hops aboard, taking his weight down to 123 pounds, but the concern is that he may not be a boy's horse – he might need a stronger, more experienced rider aboard – which could make the booking of Poon problematic. However, the 10-pound claim is crucial here and makes him a worthy top choice. #3 Gorgeous Again has done nothing wrong, improving steadily to win three races before a game last-start second. He is still in his first preparation and at some point, he will hit a brick wall, but for the time being, he deserves inclusion again with Joao Moreira jumping back aboard. #8 Cool Brothers improved markedly for the step up to a mile at his fourth start last time out. He now steps up to 1800m and is a leading player. #10 Premium Champion is worth including for exotics. He has dropped a long way from his ratings peak, almost 40 points, and he looks like he is about to find form again. The blinkers coming off is another interesting move.
