Achieved six wins at this venue; beaten half a length just behind Prince Of Fire and Inherit The Rain in runner-up and third (was done no favours by the draw, over 7f here) last month; warrants plenty of respect despite having more on his plate

Verdict

Inherit The Rain could be dangerous if in the mood, and one to bear in mind is The Winter Lake despite his current losing run. However, KHAYA'S HOPE is fancied for this. He is taken to reverse placings with Prince Of Fire and Inherit The Rain and has won over this CD.
