Chaparro's one Polytrack success came over 1m3f and this looks on the short side but Joseph O'Brien's booking for the lightly-raced Daisy Mountain looks intriguing. BADGER OR BUST has only won once from 34 starts but ran some fair races on turf last year and can return to Polytrack on a lower mark. He gets the vote in a tough contest in which Mount Abora should make a bold bid after a very good run over the C&D last month. The excellent Ben Curtis will give Aunt Molly a positive ride on her handicap debut while Suspect Device ran his best-ever race on his only start on Polytrack.
