Verdict

Many of these took part in this last year and have been beating each other in turn at this year's Carnival. WAR ARTIST, runner-up a year ago, was having his first start since October when mid-division behind Invincible Ash three weeks ago and will strip fitter and ready to go this time. He's now in the veteran stage but looks to have a fair chance of going one better. Addictive Dream has done superbly here and though beaten behind Krypton Factor last time that was over 6f on Tapeta and this is his track and trip. He's taken to come out best of the numerous UK and Irish challengers though Prohibit is better than he's been showing here and the USA-based Regally Ready is very much better than he looked on his only run here behind Invincible Ash. Ortensia, a Grade 1 winner in Australia and the veteran Sha Tin specialist Joy And Fun make this an intriguing contest.
