Curtis has been fine form of late, and wasn't disgraced on a hat-trick bid last time, while Foreset scored well last time and is respected again for his new connections. However, preference is for another recent winner, PORTFOLIO MANAGER, who looks to be capable of finding much more.

Verdict

The penny finally dropped for TRIANGULATE when he finished second last time, and Chad Brown's youngster is backed to go one better than that here. Whyamisolucky looks to be slowly heading in the right direction and he can provide the main danger, while the newcomers Bourbon Boy and Catch Twenty Two are also considered.
