METEROLOGISTS proved that his maiden victory two starts ago was no fluke by finishing second here earlier in the month and those performances give him a big shout this evening. Taurus C was disappointing last time out but did finish in front of a few of these the time before that, while Lucky's Fantasy also warrants consideration.
