Verdict

Both Able Master and Yair Hill drop down a grade but have something to prove off their current marks. Dubai Dynamo finished ahead of Frog Hollow last time and makes more appeal than stablemate Victoire De Lyphar as this is much tougher than the race the latter won at Doncaster recently. Fieldgunner Kirkup would go close if any rain arrives but there are doubts if today's shorter trip will suit Pacific Heights. GATEPOST hasn't won since 2011 but has tumbled down the weights as a consequence and it could be his turn to today as he takes a drop in class.
