Perfect Shot gets first-time blinkers on his return to the Flat after a couple of dismal efforts over hurdles. He's clear on official ratings and has obvious claims if finding his best, but September's C&D winner EAGLE NEBULA looks more likely to return to form dropped in class today and he's preferred. Kames Park has his fifth start of the month but has also been below par of late, though recent C&D winner Rowan Ridge should confirm running with Irons On Fire here as the latter re-opposes on worse terms with Kieren Fallon replacing an apprentice.
