Verdict

Wesley Ward has a couple of interesting newcomers in Montana Sunset and Chelsea Cloisters while Mark Casse's Seeking A Star also warrants plenty of respect. It could, however, pay to side with the experience of ELLE FACTOR. She made a pleasing debut over this track and trip and should go close with normal improvement.

Verdict

HUBBADAHUBBADABOOM certainly wasn't stopping over 6f at Gulfstream last month and, entitled to improve for that first appearance since September, he gets the vote to follow up. United Patriot, a winner of three of his last five starts, rates the biggest threat ahead of Beautiful Game.
