SINGLEB could be the answer to this tricky contest; Romantic Verse and Kinnego Bay are also considered. The selection ran a sound race last time out when chasing home Eleonora over this course and distance. The draw was against him that day, as it is here, but nonetheless he looks to be on an upward curve and he can get his head in front. Romantic Verse has shown her best form so far on the all-weather, but she arrives here in good order and if the blinkers work the oracle again here then she can go close. Kinnego Bay may have to find a bit of improvement to win off his current mark but he will be suited by the return to this quicker ground and he looks to have solid place claims. Sendreni hails from a shrewd yard and is worth a market check, but Singleb was an eyecatcher last time and he can resume winning ways.
