Dhhamaan faded badly in the closing stages here when attempting to follow-up his earlier victory over course and distance. He may bounce back today but Irish raider PHILS WISH is just preferred as he was beaten only a short-head here on his latest start and this is no tougher. Onceaponatime ran well here in between a couple of poor efforts while Brown Volcano may get involved stepping up in distance but it's hard to make a decent case for any of the remainder.
