Verdict

GIANTSTEPSAHEAD drops to a mark one pound lower than what he won off here 11 months ago and he shaped okay without setting the world alight on last start so he may be able to get his head back in front at a track he is proven at. Alcatraz get the services of Adam Kirby and he finished behind Sennockian Star here last time after conceding first run. That winner has franked the form so he ought to remain competitive. Dakota City is well-handicapped on some of his form and will enjoy an expected strong pace to run at. 1. Giantstepsahead 2. Alcatraz 3. Dakota City
