109-12OR: 107BFCD
9/1

Veteran who won on his first three visits to this course including twice over this C&D before getting very worked up in the stalls, missing the break and pulling up lame last time. Given a break and can go well fresh. Rates a leading contender.

5/2

Finished his juvenile campaign with a Group 3 second and was most progressive this year winning four in a row before held at a higher level in France and Canada. Returned from a break with a solid run in Listed company and looks set to go well.

16/1

Ran second in the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes last year but hasn't been up to that level in two runs in Listed company this campaign. Respected down in grade but hasn't seen his races out the last twice and others look more solid propositions.

Won three in a row in July and was right up to his best with a very good second over this C&D last time. Likes this track and should be competitive again off the same mark.

9/4

Dropped to a really low mark when taking advantage to make it two from three over this C&D. Won well and has to be a leading contender but has gone up 8lb so not certain to confirm placings with Alsvinder.

Both AW wins have come on the fibresand but acted well here when a close third to Queen In Waiting and Alsvinder over this C&D. More required though to reverse the form.

Three-time C&D winner but looks a tough ask in this grade having been behind a number of these rivals in his recent runs.

Betting

Forecast

Queen In Waiting (9/4), Corinthia Knight (5/2), Alsvinder (5/1), Storm Over (5/1), Verne Castle (6/1), Dynamo Walt (8/1), Tropics (9/1), Midnight Malibu (12/1), Mokaatil (16/1), Zac Brown (16/1)

Verdict

Corinthia Knight is a speedy sort who is down in grade and looks worth this drop back in trip on a fast track that should play to his strengths. He's one of many that will ensure a strong pace including Alsvinder who showed at least he doesn't need to lead to run to his best when second to Queen In Waiting and the pair are closely matched. There is a slight concern that the stable haven't had a winner for a while but plenty have gone close, so a chance is taken that STORM OVER can end that run and continue his very progressive AW form. In contrast to his profile, at the other end of his career, Tropics rates the main danger with his last start easy to excuse
  1. Storm Over
  2. Tropics
  3. Corinthia Knight
