Yet to win in 23 starts; no impression when fourth in a maiden plate here over 1m1f last week; has shown signs of promise here and there and is of interest

Verdict

SOLDIERS SONG can be superior to his rivals. He has seen the form of his latest run franked and can show that a below-par effort last time was just a blip. Man Of Property is a major contender while Supreme Elevation is likely to be popular in the betting, and Funky Music should be in the hunt.
