Verdict

ARCADIAN SUNRISE, a big improver over hurdles this summer, is potentially well treated back in this code, so there's plenty to like about his claims. Bodyline is a low-mileage 4-y-o who could still have a bit more to offer on his first try at this trip, while another good run seems assured from the likeable Elysian Flame.
