Verdict

Keith Reveley won the first running of this last year and Mr Puck is one to watch out for this time. Silver Carousel and Garth are both bred for the job and the filly Granny Blackwood is by Nayef so she should have enough pace. FLAMINGO CAY is a half-brother to four winners including Franklin Gardens and Polar Ben. He hails from a yard adept at winning these races and gets the vote.
