Verdict

It looks as though the winner of this contest two years ago CROSSE FIRE has been working his way back to winning form after he was beaten by the winner of this race (Zylan) last time out with The Great Wall back in third. Scott Dixon’s charge has slipped back below his last winning mark and he might just have a little more pace for this than The Great Wall. Ballyquin can’t be left out of this due to the start he’s made to the year but he’s yet to experience this surface and that may well be a negative. Both Gentleman and Global Exceed have their quirks and will need the others to underperform to take this.
