Both of Teide Peak's wins so far came under today's amateur and he wasn't beaten far over a longer trip last time. Mick Dundee has a shout stepping back up in trip and Do More Business went close here on his latest start. JOHN POTTS is looking to end a losing spell stretching back nearly three years but he's won six times at this track in the past and Serena Brotherton is one of the more competent amateur riders around. He gets the vote to come good in this with Super Duplex another to consider.
