Avon River has proved best over a mile so far and though Shavansky went close at Newmarket last time, he may find the less exposed SHALLOW BAY too good here. The latter was a well beaten third when last seen, but that may have come too soon after his good effort at Windsor on his reappearance when caught close home by Warlu Way. Walter Swinburn's charge gets the vote here ahead of All Action, whose only win so far came on testing ground and Perpetually, who hasn't won since 2009. That year was also the last time Markazzi won though he's been kept in training despite three woeful efforts last season, but there may be more to come from Incendo.
