Verdict

Mulleady has shown good progress over hurdles of late and will figure if transferring that form across to the Flat. Bensoon just got the better of Noverre Princess over 1m3f here last week with Daytime Dreamer and Accompanist behind. The top weight also has the beating of Tight Times and should be in the mix again while it would be no surprise to see an improved effort from Cottesloe on his handicap debut. CIRCUS ACT will need to step up on his recent third at this track but there's a good chance he'll do so as that was his first start since May and he gets the tentative vote.
