Plenty with a shout in this as they renew acquaintances. Quality Art won here in December and has since finished ahead of a below-par Angelo Poliziano at this track. But he was behind both Miako and R Woody when the latter pair filled the places over track and trip recently. Greenhead High has the past form to figure and Dissent can race off a much lower mark on his first start since 2012. ONLY TEN PER CENT has gone very close in handicaps the last twice, including a second to Sir Geoffrey over course and distance, and it's John Jenkins' charge that gets the nod dropped in class for this.
