Verdict

Doug's Birthday has rattled the crossbar on three of his four starts and could easily land a first win here. However, preference is WILD WILD JUSTICE, who was a wide-margin winner over Gatling the last time they met and despite the latter scoring well here last time, should be capable of confirming the form.
