Wateed is making hard work of losing his maiden tag and was beaten a length when runner-up over track and trip on his reappearance with Coldstream back in third. But CENTAVOF wasn't beaten far despite finishing only sixth in the same race on his racecourse debut. Normal progress could see him turn the tables today and he gets the vote. Better is also expected from Taaluf after posting an improved effort over a mile here last week but the remainder are harder to fancy unless the newcomer Trinity Force comes in for support.
