ARGANIL just has the call on official ratings and, though not in the best of form, has been competing in Class 2 and 3 handicaps and this is a massive drop in class. He should return to winning ways though Haajes will ensure he doesn't have things his own way as he's been in decent form in handicaps recently despite not managing to get on the scoresheet. The remaining trio are all C&D winners but have plenty to find though Wicked Wilma may be better suited to the testing ground.
