BRING IT ON HOME was a winner at Stratford last time out and gets the vote here ahead of Dan Buoy and Valiant Shadow. The selection is probably not a lot better than this level but looks capable of winning again and in such poor company this looks to be he best chance of achieving a second win of the year. The gelding's closest rival for this one is Valiant Shadow. The seven-year-old comes from the inform Bowen yard and will appreciate this run after a spell of five months on the sidelines. Dan Buoy's last career win came back in November and he hasn't shown much since, but if patiently ridden the gelding should figure here. Another poor race here but Bring It On Home stands out from the crowd here.
