Nant Saeson comes out best at the weights but has yet to win or race in heavy ground. PETROCELLI is preferred as he went very close over a longer trip in heavy going here last week when runner-up to Barathea Dancer. Better off at the weights today, Wilf Storey's charge can reverse running and as he's usually held up, it won't be a disaster if he misses the kick from the flag start. Jupiter Fidius and Spread Boy have both won over shorter trips this season but Goldmadchen has a shout on today's surface.
