Kellys Brow won at Uttoxeter and Perth over the summer and has been placed on heavy ground between the flags. He shouldn't be far away here while a chance can also be given to Howizee and Global Fella if they are fully wound-up. Tony Coyle runs Crystal Rock, the mount of Timmy Murphy, and RIVER DRAGON and it's the latter who gets the vote. He's turned out again quickly after winning over 2m on heavy ground on the Flat at Newcastle on Wednesday and races off the same mark as when second over C&D in April. Bury Parade looked a decent prospect for Robert Bewley last season but this will be the furthest he's ever travelled and he has a lot of weight to carry following a lay-off. The trip could also be a problem for Cool Baranca.
