Verdict

Viva Vettori is clear at the weights but it doesn't bode well seeing him return to action at this level on his first start since 2011. OFFICER IN COMMAND looks a safer proposition as he's won three times this year already and is better off on today's terms for an earlier defeat by Hurricane Spirit. The latter should be in the mix again and Honey Of A Kitten is another with a shout having beaten Buaiteoir over track and trip last month and winning again here on his latest start.
