The majority of these arrive in decent form but few have won recently though that doesn't apply to Cara's Request, who scored over the course and distance from 8lb lower in May. The maiden Hanalei Bay looks a bit high in the weights on what he's achieved but the veteran SUMMER DANCER, who won a division of this last year, is 6lb lower and showed he was ready to win again with a fine run over a mile here two weeks ago. He can go one better though Viva Ronaldo has been running in much better company and, having dropped to his lowest-ever mark, must rate a major threat. Rio Cobolo has been narrowly beaten on several occasions recently but Perfect Words has never raced beyond 6f.
