Where's Reiley has been running well all year though a high draw will be difficult to overcome but PICANSORT is well berthed and so well handicapped that he has to be the selection. Six times a winner on Polytrack, he's yet to open his account on Turf but has gone up 19lb on the all-weather since the turn of the year and that progress should be maintained back on this surface. Athwaab is better handicapped on the all-weather but the veteran Kyllachy Storm is on the same mark as when successful here in August and his young pilot's claim is a bonus. Trending has also won around here and would be a threat if ready after his break.
