FILUN likes this undulating track and was only beaten two lengths over C&D nine days ago. He should be approaching peak fitness now and can add to a couple of victories here last year. Boston Blue may be the danger as he's only a pound higher than when successful at Goodwood last August and he scored over timber over the winter. Dubai Glory is also potentially well treated but it's usually worth opposing Bennelong and Darsan while Aciano appears to have lost his way.
