Verdict

TREND MASTER is a strong pick. He has a fine record at this trip and can confirm superiority with Captain Chorus and Tokyo Drift who were behind him last time. Stop For Nothing should appreciate this course while Etched In Blue is respected, and this trip could be a bit far for Captain Chorus.
