Forecast

Who's Steph (2/7), Credenza (4/1), Surrounding (5/1), Moteo (10/1), Shekiba (20/1), Coeur D'Amour (25/1)

Verdict
The front-running Credenza will be fitter for her reappearance and the slight drop in trip should help. Surrounding improved for the run when shaping as though she's worth a try at this trip. WHO'S STEPH is a Group class performer who clipped heels and stumbled early on her return so did well to go so close, she's suited by the drop back in trip and these conditions and her rivals will need to find significant progress if she produces her best.
