Verdict

MR. IRRELEVANT was touched off by just a neck in a more valuable claimer over 6 1/2f latest and looks the one to beat dropped in class and stepped up in trip. Expect The Man has filled the runner-up berth over C&D the last twice and could be the one to capitalise if the selection doesn't get home.

Verdict

CALIFORNIUM didn't really take to turf on his last two starts but ran out a very impressive maiden winner over this track and trip before those efforts and could resume his progress now back on dirt. Just Misunderstood, a taking C&D maiden winner himself latest, looks the biggest danger, ahead of Lucky B. N..

Verdict

COLONEL GOTHAM could be the safest option in a tricky finale having landed a similar event here last time out. Canducharlie is considered stepping back up to a winning distance after going close in a sprint latest, while Image Of Truth is not one to rely on but is a big player if putting his best foot forward.
