Verdict

Coil won a Grade 1 sprint over C&D last month beating Capital Account by a neck with Jimmy Creed and Amazombie in close attendance. That looks a red hot trial for this especially as the latter won last year's renewal. Those four are hard to separate so it could pay to look elsewhere and THE LUMBER GUY is worth a second glance. The lightly-raced three-year-old posted his best effort so far to win the Vosburgh Stakes in New York in September but there was no fluke about it as he had previous Grade 1 winner Poseidon's Warrior back in third. Michael Hushion's grey might just be good enough to land this. Smiling Tiger has been unable to match last year's high-class form so far this season but it's interesting that Bob Baffert returns the unbeaten Fast Bullet to action at this level on the back of a couple of fast workouts at the track.
