Fabled City has shown no benefit for his slide down the weights and is stepped up in trip. Green Earth was in fine form earlier in the year, winning four times including three victories over track and trip. He's gone off the boil since but is not easily dismissed while Brown Pete has outside claims off his current mark. MIZYEN has found one too good on his last three starts, all at this track, but he gets one more chance to finally get his head in front as the handicapper has consented to keep him on the same mark.
