Verdict

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR scored over the course and distance in October and, as he's only 4lb higher, he'll be difficult to beat. Badger Daly had dropped to a lowly mark before running well over slightly further here three weeks ago but has now gone back up in the weights though it will be a surprise if he's not in the firing-line. Pivotal Rock does most of his running on Polytrack and he's yet to each the frame in four starts on Turf while Crystal Harmony hasn't run since November. Busalla would be the selection if getting a run from his first reserve spot as he is one of the few with scope and ran very well in a course and distance handicap last month.
