Angelito only had to be pushed out to beat Asian Trader over C&D last month but the merit of that form is open to debate. I See You is more battle-hardened and in good form having only gone down by a neck over C&D four days ago while Ocean Myth is often thereabouts, though was some way behind TRENDING on fast ground here in July. The waiting tactics were overdone on Jeremy Gask's grey last time and that run is best forgotten. He can get the better of the luckless Gladiatrix and come out on top today.
