DINGAAN has yet to win this year but has taken a big slide down the weights and looks ready to take advantage now. He was beaten only a length over C&D last time with Welcome Approach, Almaty Express and Itsthursdayalready all behind. Francis Albert's two wins have both been over the minimum trip, but Boldinor is back on a winning mark and could figure. Cadmium Loch could also make the frame and Kristollini is better than her latest poor run here would suggest.
