Nothing to fault about his last run (1½l third) three weeks ago (Vaal), a race won by the reopposing Kool Baikal; hard to dismiss; stable form an obvious plus

Verdict

Kool Baikal will not be without market support, and Dark Travel should appreciate this course. However, SILLY FELLA is fancied for this. He is taken to confirm placings with River Jordan and Perfectly Putt.
