The hat-trick seeking Oceanway is another Mark Johnston three-year-old sent into battle against her elders and has strong claims to deliver the hat-trick with both previous successes arriving at this trip. She'll go well on that form but is up a stone and THE FONZ may prove too strong. The Stoute team is in good heart and this looks the gelding's best chance for some time. Far from disgraced in top grade handicap company this term, he's dropped a couple of pounds and could benefit from the interesting move back to a mile and a quarter. Dhaamer is definite shortlist material as a lightly-raced four-year-old open to improvement with solid efforts to his name in respectable handicap company this term. This looks his optimum trip and he should be in the mix along with the reliable Suits Me.
