Verdict

This Listed sprint looks even more competitive than our opener but the form of DESERT AUCTION stands out the most so he gets the vote accordingly ahead of Walkingonthemoon and Little Perisher. The pick has scored in each of his last two starts both over the minimum trip. That said he ran on to take those successes late on suggesting this step up to six furlongs should suit nicely and with the form of the latest victory looking strong he looks a likely winner. Walkingonthemoon kept on well but was headed late in his last start, which came over this distance. Previous to that he hung away any chance of scoring over the minimum trip but it seems the penny has dropped now so we can expect a big run. Little Perisher won a warm looking maiden on his last outing beating a couple of subsequent winners in the process. That was a comprehensive display so although this is a step up in class he can challenge. Red Avalanche and Royal Desert also have claims after some good efforts recently but with Desert Auction on such good form he should be able to land the hat-trick.
