Bebeau historical data/form

Point of Humor and Teachable Moment both rattled the crossbar last time and make plenty of appeal. However, a chance is taken on the expensive newcomer BAD DUDE, who has looked more than useful on the workout track. Consistent duo Duncastle and Bebeau have to be on the shortlist, while Chad Brown's Road To Meath is respected.

TOO MANY TALES gets the nod in this competitive affair and could be back to her very best following a 131-day absence. The closely matched Delta Gamma is entitled to be thereabouts, while Miss Ross and Tarallucci both have place possibilities.

Hoponthebusgus historical data/form

The hat-trick seeking BAREEQA makes most appeal here and will prove tough to beat if continuing her recent run of form. She can confirm placings with Hoponthebusgus, who wasn't too far behind (second) when they met here last month, with Queen Kahen and China Rider others with useful runs under their belt of late.
