IMPERIAL VIC goes from strength-to-strength and should go close if improving again on a couple of recent C&D victories while Monetary Fund was successful here in November and has been taking on better opposition since. A watching brief is advised on Drill Sergeant, however, as he is a bit quirky and without a run this season while the front-running Los Nadis needs to step up on recent efforts. Howizee still looks a shade high in the weights and Makhzoon and Markadam may find this too tough.
