Unbridle Me Fast will be out to put his superior experience to good use but may just bump into another too good again. HERKIMER STORM could be the one as he has performed well of late and should still be improving. Truest Cat can also get involved.

BARDSTOWN has finished in the first two in eight of his nine career starts and it is that consistency that gives the seven-year-old an edge over Divine Mandate and Kenzou's Empire.
