Verdict

Fastidious was a progressive performer for Dermot Weld and scored at Gowran in September. If he takes to the surface he should go well for new connections. Golden Shoe has won over this trip on Turf but appears to be better over an extra furlong on this surface, a remark that also applies to Curl Cat. Greek Canyon made a bold attempt to make all over the C&D last month and has won from a higher mark on Turf but with a fast pace almost guaranteed it's CORE ELEMENT who can make his class tell. He's been competing at a higher level and hasn't been beaten far in his recent races so this looks within his capabilities.
