Commanche Raider has had 37 runs but never on ground this testing so it remains to be seen how he acts. He's a course and distance winner, like Tongalooma, though the latter was a long way behind PULL THE PIN at Hamilton last time. The winner then finished close-up behind Fleurtille on this track and a big run from the latter in the previous race will give the form a boost and Paul Green's charge gets the vote. Mission Impossible is always best when the mud is flying and Tracey Waggott's grey has dropped to a fair mark so should be competitive.
