It's difficult to have much confidence in any of these. CAPTAIN KENDALL gets the token vote as he's the highest rated on official figures and should do better dropping back down in distance. Island Express finished ahead of the disappointing odds-on favourite Summer Sun as well as Sign Pro when second over C&D last week and could prove next best despite having plenty to find at the weights. Miakora was placed on more than once occasion earlier this year and makes more appeal than Desert Red.
