Welsh Inlet didn't run very well here last time and is still 6lb higher than his last victory. This looks too sharp for veteran South Cape while Midnight Feast is still creeping up the weights, despite not winning. Mishrif and Darnathean lack a recent run and preference is for WEST LEAKE, who dead-heated for third with Midnight Feast behind Teen Ager here two weeks ago when Perfect Ch'I was sixth. Paul Burgoyne's charge is likely to run his race again which is more than can be said about most of the others.
