Verdict

The manner in which SONG OF THE SKY made up ground late on to score at Cork recently was eye-catching. This is tougher on the revised terms but he was going away at the line and might well prove up to it. Lace Bonnet held on gamely for the minor money in that race and has scope for doing better on just a fifth career start. Last year's winner Bay Hill cannot be discounted on favourable terms while Pillard and Lizard Point are others to be considered.
