Nomathemba is the only one with experience but has been well beaten in both starts. Stablemate and newcomer Shot In The Sun could prove the better of that pair while Earl's Bridge hails from a yard whose two-year-old runners are always worthy of a second glance. Trinity Boy has an entry in one of the valuable sales races later in the season and is preferred to Larsen Bay and Nonagon but the vote goes to SLEEPY JOE. Mick Channon's colt is a half-brother to a winner from the family of high-class sprinter Superstar Leo and may well prove good enough on his introduction.
