Peace In Our Time is unexposed on this surface and may figure having finished second on the Polytrack last time when Highlife Dancer was well beaten. Strategic Action has claims tackling today's longer trip for only the second time but Finlodex will need to step up on his poor effort over track and trip in October. REDOUTE STAR is looking to end a long losing run but has shown signs of doing so with a couple of placed efforts of late. A visor replaces the more usual blinkers and he gets the tentative vote.
