With so many newcomers entered, THATS NICE couldn't be a positive selection though his debut here last month when a close third to New Kid In Town looks strong enough form to gain his first success. Intheolddays has been a bit hit and miss but he acts on fast going and wasn't beaten far over this trip at Gowran last time. Thomas Ledger has shown a modicum of ability and should be suited by the step-up in trip while Pack The Punch could be best of the newcomers as the son of Teofilo is related to numerous winners on the Flat.
