INHERITED has been placed off today's mark on his last couple of outings. But like so many from his yard, he's likely to improve for this longer trip and gets the nod. Sweeping Rock finished closer over track and trip when attempting 2m for the first time and Luckster may also figure having posted a much better effort over 1m6f last month. Noor Al Haya continues to creep up the weights and Point of Control could prove a bigger threat if she stays the distance.
