Solid effort in defeat to finish third after going off 16-1 over C&D with the blinkers back on last month (maiden plate); if stepping up from most recent effort poses a threat

Verdict

WIND WATER looks the one to back. He has just one run under his belt so more open to improvement than some of these. Covert Operator is one to be feared while Fort Apache is in with a shout, but does need to be forgiven a poor run last time, and Last Survivor might have a say.
