Verdict

2011 winner Dunaden and last year's winner Green Moon have tougher tasks this time. Mount Athos encountered plenty of trouble when fifth behind the latter last year and the draw hasn't be kind. Luca Cumani's charge is closely matched with Brown Panther, who won the Goodwood Cup in fine style when beating Ahzeemah. The latter doesn't line up but had beaten Simenon before suffering a six length defeat at the hands of the progressive VOLEUSE DE COEURS in the Irish St Leger. She's since joined Michael Moroney in Australia and looks to have every chance on the Curragh form. Red Cadeaux has come up short in this twice before but beat Royal Empire at Newbury in August. Dandino has a shout on his good effort behind Fawkner in the Caulfield Cup, while last year's runner-up Fiorente, Hawkspur and Sea Moon may also figure. French filly Verema is another to consider with her recent defeat of Joshua Tree working out well.
