Verdict

Several of these ran well here a fortnight ago including two winners, Fulbright and Anaerobio. The former was brought with a smooth challenge on Tapeta to beat Modern History while the latter comfortably saw off today's rival Iguazu Falls, who has a good record around here. DUX SCHOLAR was tackling a trip too far on his return to this track two weeks ago and is better judged on his earlier efforts at around this distance. He's yet to score at Group level but this looks a good opportunity. Gale Force Ten is up to this grade at his best and though Heavy Metal, a dual Group 1 winner in South Africa, looks thrown in at the weights, the form of his Greyville victory in July has worked out very poorly. The lightly-raced and progressive Mshawish could prove best of the remainder.
