Factor Me In is a big threat on his best form as new connections lower his sights immediately. Meshuga is respected in his hat-trick bid.

Verdict

THEBOYZGRAND KIS was knocking on the door in better turf races than this before a moderate outing on dirt latest and will relish the switch back to grass. As will Elcaballodelmanana, who is two from three on this surface, and Double Down Bob is another to consider.
