WHITE BLUFF doesn't win as much as his rivals in this allowance contest but he is used to keeping better company and recent second-placed efforts in stakes races at this track read well. Venomous State is a must for the shortlist on a hat-trick and both Pray With Faith and Gone Inzane are capable if ready to roll following their respective absences.
