Odin needs to find a bit more judged on his recent efforts but Midas Moment has claims on his best form, though is not the most consistent. Bennelong will hoping the wet weather arrives as it was soft ground when he scored at Brighton last month but the vote goes to SOUTH CAPE. He's dropped 20lb in the handicap since this time last year and a better effort at Bath last time suggests his long losing run is about to end. Multiple all-weather winner Hurakan remains without a win on this surface while Circle Of Angels was engaged to run at Doncaster yesterday.
