My T Quick has experience at a slightly higher level which gives him claims here, while Nicolas Cajun has not been disgraced of late. However, a chance is taken on MAXIMUM MAXIMUM making the step up to winning ways here and he is an ultra-consistent performer.

RECONCILING is backed to go one better than his second last time, while Briana Jean has been in good form of late and has to be respected. Wild Derby Daze has won three of her last four and she is another to consider who could surprise at very long forecast odds.
