Albaqaa and Italian Tom remain out of sorts and Lujeanie was beaten in a claimer over 5f here on Wednesday. I See You continues to run well but in lower grade sprints than this but Millibar is another three-year-old in fine form having gone close again here last time after scoring over C&D in October. However, FOREST EDGE looks to have the superior form with three victories since August and he's taken to continue his good progress after a going close at this track on his latest start.
