Decana is capable of better back on this surface and her yard landed a touch here on Tuesday with Cosimo de Medici. Picalily was pulled up in the latter's race when her bit slipped but had won easily over track and trip before that. Soweto Star ran way below par here during the week but Exclusion won her maiden over a mile at this track last month. Golden Jubilee and Mohawk Ridge have something to prove on the Fibresand so a speculative vote goes the way of ADILI racing back here for the first time since winning a maiden over course and distance last season.
