FORBUCKS wasn't far away over the track and trip last time and a similar performance should suffice in lesser company. Bier Creek arrives with plenty of experience and is another for the shortlist along with the $6,000 yearling, Looking Golden.

CALL ME MISTY is beginning to get the hang of things and the drop back to 6f last time brought about an improvement. With experience under his belt, he is expected to break his duck this time but don't completely rule out the likes of Bandini's Rogue and The Gov.
