In depth

Verdict

It's hard to have much confidence in any of these. Meglio Ancora is a recent winner but in an even lower grade than this while Archelao scored over track and trip back in April but hasn't figured since. Bennelong needs further nowadays, though Polydamos ran his best race of the year when dropped back to today's trip at Kempton. CATIVO CAVALLINO has had just the two starts this year and he gets the token vote given he was placed off much higher marks at this track last season and could well take advantage.
