Finished last of 12 in a handicap over C&D last month; likes tight tracks but not always shown an awful lot since winning a handicap at Greyville Polytrack in January; is easing down the weights; very difficult to fancy

Creditable fourth, beaten just over 1l, of 12 in a handicap last month over C&D; that form has substance (produced a next-time-out winner); dropping in the ratings

Run To Denmark silk
Run To Denmark
J: G Wright
T: W A Nel
Creditable effort (went off 25-2) in a handicap here (1m2f) in May; tight tracks suit and worth noting that all his wins have come racing right handed; one to note if reproducing the form of his win at Greyville Polytrack in January

Verdict

IDEAL ACT should find this very winnable. He has won here once before. Run To Denmark is a big threat while Willow's Wish is likely to attract market support, and Arumugam is capable of running well.
