OBLITERATE has shown enough in three career starts to suggest that he can land a race like this and perhaps first-time blinkers will provide the spark that is required. Newcomers Charlie Grey and Ernie Banks both need market checks.

Verdict

CALL SAUL has run well in three of his last four starts and won't get many better chances than this to end his long winless run. Smoked Too Many and the recently claimed Barton Lodge are others who could be involved at the business end.
