VHUJON bounced back to form from a high draw over 6f here a week ago. He scored with a bit in hand too so gets the nod to follow up today despite his penalty as he's won off higher marks in the past. Recent Wolverhampton winner Gala Spirit should go well again and there's little to separate Warbond and Shaunas Spirit on their running over a mile at this track last time when second and third respectively. Gazboolou should be thereabouts once again and Dingaan could pose a threat if back to his best.
