Verdict

CAPTAIN CHORUS is the most likely winner here. He can confirm superiority over Barak and Western Fort, who were behind him last time and has been a winner over this CD. However, there's not much between those likely to be in the mix; Barak would need to be forgiven a poor run last time to be a contender, while Don't Look Back will attract market support.
