EXCLUSIVE WATERS looks to have leading claims in this opener. He went very close over track and trip last time with Silly Billy well back in third and Charlie Hills' charge can go one better. Silly Billy also has plenty to find with Raging Bear on recent running and the latter should figure ahead of Pravda Street, who landed a lowly seller here in January. Run Fat Lass Run is unproven on the surface and hasn't raced since 2012.
