In depth

Verdict

Today's drop in class may see Quito Du Tresor bounce back to form in which case he'll go very close. Novice chase winner Houston Dynimo also has claims on his handicap bow but Quite The Man has lost his form since scoring at Perth back in May and the same comment applies to Red Tanber, who recorded a double early in the year. Mister Wall Street should finish closer with a recent run under his belt but the vote goes to CIVIL UNREST to follow-up his recent win over 2m4f at this track as he had subsequent winner Mentalist back in third.
