Verdict

Red Duke landed the Group 2 Superlative Stakes as a juvenile and though not coming anywhere near that kind of form subsequently he's been competing at a much higher level and had a nice pipe-opener a couple of weeks ago. He can go well in a tough handicap in which Chasing Halos has to be a big threat as he's done very well here since arriving with winning form in France. PIED A TERRE was behind that pair last time and hasn't set the world alight since arriving with a big reputation from Australia. The handicapper has taken pity on him however and, as his last run was over a trip too short, he's handed the vote to pop up at a nice price. Mundahesh has won a couple of minor handicaps on Tapeta recently and has no problems acting on Turf so he's another to consider.
