Verdict

Elusive Express hasn't been able to get his head in front and connections try him over a much longer trip. He's quite well treated and will be an obvious threat if staying. Chebona Bula's third spot here last time was the first time he's been placed in a dozen starts on the surface and he's still a couple of pounds high in the weights while Blue Cross Boy has a poor strike-rate with just one victory in 34 starts. WORD FOR WORD has become expensive to follow and his lone success came over a year ago but he ran his best race for some time over slightly further here last week and is taken to go one better.
