Analysis

David O'Meara: "He won here two starts ago, he likes the ground and the trip. He was given a great ride. He's only scrambled home so we'll see what the handicapper does but he's obviously thriving. We gave David about 20 winners last year, more than anyone else, and we use him when we can when Danny (Tudhope) is not available."
