Red Senor returns to action and showed enough in his three starts to suggest he can land a race of this nature despite not having raced since July. Christopher Chua hasn't been seen at the track since well beaten at Epsom in the same month last year and Samba Night has superior form, but he's another making his comeback. The latest run of SUGAR PRINCE can be dismissed as his saddle slipped, but he went close when attempting to make all over 7f here in February and Tim Pitt's colt could take the catching if allowed an easy lead today.
