LUNA CRESENTE impressed when second on debut and can go one better to get off the mark here. Feel the Funk has been knocking on the door and she, along with the closely matched Nik Nik's Castle, represent the main opposition.

Verdict

Safari Tan has won five of her last six starts and has to be given serious respect along with Nye, who got the better of Hardened Wildcat last time and can do so again here. However, preference is for PADDY'S NOTES, who had won three on the spin before flopping last time.
