Son Of Rest (5/1), Growl (8/1), Get Knotted (9/1), Golden Apollo (10/1), Aces (10/1), Flying Pursuit (12/1), Perfect Pasture (14/1), Gunmetal (14/1), Major Jumbo (14/1), Muntadab (14/1), Teruntum Star (20/1), Summerghand (20/1), George Bowen (20/1), Ice Age (20/1), Upstaging (22/1), G Force (22/1), Tommy Taylor (25/1), Staxton (25/1), Baron Bolt (28/1), Brian The Snail (28/1), Justanotherbottle (33/1), Kimberella (40/1), Naadirr (40/1), Tanasoq (50/1), Goring (50/1)

Verdict
A good pace assured, with the admirably consistent Major Jumbo and Muntadab in the field. Son Of Rest has been all the rage for this after his Group 1 effort last weekend but a quick turnaround and a slight question mark over the trip mean he's now little in the way of value. At a bigger price ICE AGE has a bit going for him, as he is drawn to track the pace, has won big-field handicaps before, handles the ground and appears to be keeping his form well. He can go close. Growl looks a good bet to hit the places again and along with the consistent Get Knotted and Terentium Star, can go well.
