Verdict

Neither Koalition nor Sir Elmo make any appeal so this looks like going to a newcomer. One of Sanad's winning half-brother's scored over a mile as a two-year-old and he's preferred to stablemate Right Divine. Mark Johnston won this in 2009 and Hurricane Emerald will have no problem with today's distance if good enough. Catchy Tune and Magic Bounty are others to note, but the speculative vote goes to the American-bred PEARL CHARM, who cost 155,000 dollars and is a brother to a Grade 3 winner in the states.
