In a wide-open contest it could pay to stick with the most recent winning form and TITAN DIAMOND is the tentative selection. He got off the mark over 7f here last week with Surprise back in fourth place and looks ready for this return to a longer trip. Govenor General is steadily improving despite looking one-paced, while Hackett has been placed in plating company recently and can figure. Crown Ridge may do better here with Tuesday's comeback run under his belt and Microlight is another to consider.
