Upped to 1m in a maiden plate two weeks ago when unable to land a blow in ninth on his second outing for this trainer; others more likely as headgear needs to have a positive effect

Verdict

This has the look of a wide-open race but preference is for ARVERNI WARRIOR who has seen the form of his latest run franked. Alabaster could have a say, Motor City Hitman may give the others plenty to think about, and Displace Time holds claims if his latest performance can be forgiven.
