FIRST REWARD had Rocky River (third), Echoes Of Thunder (fourth) and Heart Of A Warrior (fifth) behind when chasing home American Cougar over track and trip last month. That was the son of Flower Alley's first outing since the fall and, with further improvement anticipated, he is taken to record his second career success. Uncle Archie can chase the selection home.

Verdict

CRAZY SWEET obliged here in the fall and started where she left off when successful on her return here last month. The daughter of Majestic Warrior has a fine strike-rate and can land the hat-trick at the expense of fellow last-time-out winner Get Sassy and Cactus Copy, who was a fine second on her comeback.

Verdict

Ethical Compliance has displayed little in three maidens but has possibilities in this company, while Argentum Puteus is another eased in grade. Cougaress hit the crossbar over track and trip latest but is a longstanding maiden, so TRAVERTINE, not disgraced in stronger claimers, is the tentative pick.
