WARREN'S TRICIA R. returned to the winner's enclosure on his most recent outing when appreciating a more patient ride and, if ridden similarly, will prove difficult to beat. Team Halo and Our Eye Candy both merit consideration.

Word Racer looks a favourite well worth opposing with no recent form good enough to even hit the frame so the vote goes to MENTAL ICEBERG. Happyisoutback looks potentially the most solid danger.
