Dynamic Duo has had plenty of chances and Mossbrae ran as though something was amiss last time having run well on his debut at Yarmouth when finishing a length ahead of Ruban. Jockey bookings suggest the latter is preferred to Ustura but SIR QUINTIN gets the nod. He proved a disappointment last time but his earlier placed efforts over today's trip would have been good enough to win most maidens and he can open his account. A trio of newcomers are worth noting with Maori Dancer preferred to 480,000gns gelding Mutaaleq and Sands Of Fortune.
