Verdict

Sports Line was just starting to struggle when falling in Silk Drum's race over C&D in the spring but both face a stiff task at the weights here. Takeroc also looks to be on a prohibitive mark, while Quito Du Tresor was put up 15lb after scoring at Perth last month. Mister Stickler is capable of going well fresh but it may be wise to stick with QUICUYO, who only scored narrowly at Carlisle on his reappearance but still isn't badly treated if back to his best and hails from a yard enjoying a bit of a purple patch at present.
