Verdict

This place is like a second home to Matmata de Tendron, though whether he's still capable of winning off a mark this high is debatable. Fellow veteran Camden George is another who's won here in the past and add to that list Boris The Blade, Stormion, Esme Rides A Gaine and Samson Collonges. Heez A Steel would probably have beaten Great Ocean Road at Sedgefield had he not made a mess of the last. He can reverse that form here but the step up in trip may suit FOZY MOSS and Stuart Coltherd's novice can open his account today. Cottiers Den also has some scope and could be best of the rest.
