Verdict

Plenty in with chances in a competitive allowance optional claimer, but TRUTH IN THE LIES finished second in the Grade 3 Dr James Penny Memorial Stakes at Philadelphia last time and that form reads well in the context of this race. Matty's Magnum lines up chasing the hat-trick and joins Lion In Wait and Special Relativity on the shortlist.
