Respectable effort in defeat in a maiden plate 14 days ago over C&D; that form has substance (produced a next-time-out winner); was an encouraging third four races ago and if in the same mood must be considered

Verdict

Chances are given to Insightful and Phantomoftheforest, and Stroke Of Mercy rates a serious threat. However, MUNCHKIN is hard to get away from. He finished ahead of Full Go and Fiddleronthecliffs 14 days ago and the form of his last race has been franked.
