The two chief contenders have something to prove here. AL ZIR was aimed high last year with a fourth in a Group 3 at Newmarket in October his best effort. Quietly fancied to make a winning reappearance over 1m2f, he found little in the closing stages and a chance is taken today's drop in trip will spark a revival. Border Patrol was a Group 3 winner in 2009 but disappointed in only two starts last year and the likely fast ground is a worry. As for the remainder, the selection's stablemate La De Two needs further, while Balcarce Nov and Vitznau look up against it on today's terms.
