Verdict

Ellnando Queen was given a positive ride to score by five lengths here last month. Similar tactics are likely to be employed today as a few of these could get outpaced, including chaser Drumlang. Brinestine and Chemistry Master are worth a second look, however, though the latter was due to run yesterday over hurdles. Knightly Escapade may do better with no hurdles to jump and McCoy rides but STAND TO REASON is likely to take all the beating. A winner three times on the Flat, including once on the Polytrack, he won his first two starts over hurdles before coming unstuck in a Grade 2 last time and might be too quick for today's rivals.
