Kay Gee Be and Edas are both previous course and distance winners but it's a while since either of the veterans have shown any worthwhile form. Remix hasn't pulled up any tree either lately but Diddy Eric has done a bit better in his last couple of starts at Hamilton and Spokesperson must also have some sort of chance. MIDNIGHT WARRIOR can't get much lower in the weights and has had a recent run, finishing fourth at Beverley last week. On that basis, he gets a tentative vote.
