Verdict

Adam Kirby is riding well this winter and we think he can pilot PEACE CORPS to victory and in doing so reversing the form of their last meeting with Capeability while Tropical Blue sets the standard remains an interesting runner in this maiden.Having looked a little easier to work with than on previous runs on the level the pick was only half a length behind Capeability last time. The step up in trip should be advantageous to him and if building on that better run on his last start he has every chance of going in.Capeabilty has to remain on the shortlist given he got the better of the pick on that last run. That said, he's not the most consistent and has it to prove over this far.Tropical Blue didn't get home over two miles last time but ran his best race over 14 furlongs here in December. He has the form pilot to get him home and he has a real live chance.Hydrant is also worthy of a mention having run well a few times and he should be suited by this drop in trip but Peace Corps looked good last time and should improve for this extra yardage.
