Risen Sun, Arms Around Me and Mr Cool Cash all hail from yards that have won this contest in recent years. Kevin Ryan also sent out the winner in 2009 and he runs two today. Bapak Asmara is helped by an apprentice's allowance but HARD N SHARP makes more appeal on jockey bookings and is a half-brother to several winners including the smart pair Go Dutch and Peach Pearl. He gets a speculative vote especially if the betting speaks in his favour.
