Everything John Ferguson saddles, especially when travelling north, has to be considered so a winning debut over timber is envisaged for RUACANA. A consistent 88-rated performer on the Flat for Michael Bell, he'll know his job and this is an easy track to have a first run. Moidore has to be a threat after two decent efforts and he was also a fair performer on the level, especially in testing conditions. Right To Rule has a penalty for his Haydock success but he's progressing nicely and with his stable in outstanding form has to be a threat along with Totalize, who has joined Brian Ellison after scoring at Wolverhampton for Luca Cumani.
