First Move could figure now handicapping for the first time but TECTONIC has more obvious claims. He's gone close at this track the last twice and has the beating of Triple Eight and Gold Chain on that form. Dandarrell won at Southwell in March but saves his best for that track while both Valantino Oyster and Polar Forest have failed to cope with a rise in the weights for their earlier wins. Nelson's Bay looks best of the rest if staying this longer trip.
