PONTE VEDRA SKY could hardly have been more impressive when scoring by some nine lengths here last month and another bold showing from this five-year-old looks assured. Transcendent is another boasting sound claims, while both Heart Of A Warrior and Leaveitalonelarry are players if ready to roll following their respective absences.

Verdict

BLOW THE WHISTLE was denied a hat-trick here in similar company last time but did finish a creditable third behind the reopposing Yakov and that form can be reversed this time. The latter has since posted a moderate effort in defeat but cannot be completely ruled out, while Grey Gator and Ronnie Roam are others to respect.
