Verdict

Aleksandar may prove best of Jim Goldie's trio as Caledonia, who has the better form, is much better on ground with plenty of give. The former was a long way in front of LA BACOUETTEUSE at Hamilton though the latter is much better over this track and trip and has won his last two starts here. He looks the one to be on though there's little between him and Maoi Chinn Tire on their 1-2 here a month ago. Longshadow is in excellent form and wasn't disgraced when tackling 2m5f at Goodwood last time so he's another with a good chance in an open race.
