Verdict

A low draw is usually an advantage on the sprint course here so any market support for $120,000 yearling Gin Trap would be worth noting. But COOL STRUTTER, who runs in the same colours, should be the one to beat as he's improving with experience and had the remainder well beaten when chasing home Inniscastle Lad at Nottingham. Equally Fast was second over course and distance in a five-runner race here last month but Windsor fifth Dunnscotia may have more scope. Zuzinia has had plenty of chances and is likely to find at least one too good again.
