In depth

Verdict

Russian Ice came out best in a blanket finish over track and trip a fortnight ago but is not certain to confirm running with the fourth Avonmore Star. There was little between Perfect Mission and The Happy Hammer at Lingfield last time while Hatta Stream went close at this track a week ago and can also figure. Al Khan finished behind Light From Mars in December and on that running has a bit to find with OCEAN LEGEND as the latter bids for his seventh course and distance success dropped in class and back on a winning mark.
