Verdict

It's difficult to second guess what most of these are going to do next, but GRUDGE was beaten only a length last time and David Kenny's claim may give him the edge here. Desert Strike won for the first time on turf at the 31st time of asking on Monday so a penalty may anchor him here, while Hypnosis never figured last time despite winning in better company on her penultimate start. Green Warrior finally got off the mark on his latest outing, though he was beaten 10 lengths before that and Rio's Girl finished runner-up in a lower grade race recently, but still finished three lengths behind the winner.
