Verdict

Both ABOVE N BEYOND and Cosmo Charlie need to shrug off lesser efforts recently, yet in their defence those exploits came at Group 1 level and with sights lowered they can fight this out, the former narrowly favoured to come out on top. Rodaini may do best of the remainder.

LAVASPIN is the selection to continue his promise on handicap bow. Alraased has been consistent this season and can go well again, whilst Speedy Move looks interesting down in the weights and can fill the places.
