Verdict

With four wins in his last five starts, the much-improved Woolston Ferry clearly can't be left out of calculations but he has to give 8lb to the unexposed MY BODY IS A CAGE. Representing the in-form Jeremy Noseda, the three-year-old overcame an absence to win a Windsor maiden in a fast time last month and the runner-up won by three lengths on his next start. Golden Tempest and Xinbama have been a bit below par lately and Yojimbo also disappointed last time while this may too tough for Polytrack regular Young Dottie, who had an alternative engagement at Epsom yesterday.
