Tevez and Where's Reiley look up against it on today's terms, but if the latter and possibly Reignier set a decent pace, it should set things up nicely for HAZZARD COUNTY. He'll be held up regardless and, after failing by only a length in a hot conditions race here last time, David Simcock's charge is fancied to confirm running with another fast finisher in Nazreef and land this. Elna Bright is better than his latest poor effort would suggest, but Palace Moon struggled to find his best last year and hasn't raced since September.
