TAKE CITY BY STORM starts out at a lowly level for new connections and it will be disappointing if he can't make a telling impact. Recent runner-up Awesome Run looks the obvious threat ahead of Thunder's Legacy.

More competitive fare but HOT LIGHTNING clocked a sharp speed figure when winning here last time and a repeat performance could see him prove hard to beat again. Tentwelvefourteen is a standing dish in these events and he can go well again, with the likes of Nightime Olympics and Macho Marini also respected.

It might be worth siding with CAROLINA ISLAND, who doesn't have many miles on the clock and ran a blinder for third here last time. He should have more to offer and is preferred to recent winner Architop, Ace On The River and Nowhere Man.
