Red Ramesses likes to race prominently so today's drop back in distance should suit and he's well clear of the opposition on handicap ratings. Still, he's had plenty of chances and RESONARE may well improve past him. The latter finished a lot closer over C&D last time despite a tardy start and further progress is expected. Dancing Ellie Mae is also lightly-raced and Silvestre De Sousa takes over the reins but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder on what little they've shown so far.
