Gatewood failed to get his head in front last season, though he went very close on more than one occasion including over 1m2f at this track. CONDUCT has been hard to keep right but ended last year on a high note with a five length victory over track and trip in the November Handicap. It's unlikely we'll see him handicapping again off his new mark but Willie Haggas' charge looks the one to beat on today's terms. Area Fifty One has gone well fresh before but has yet to win in soft ground while both Chancery and Romantic Settings have a stiff task at the weights in this company.
