Joey Haynes made all on Angus Og over the track and trip last time when just holding off the strong burst of Sharaarah. Both have gone up in the weights and now look vulnerable so fourth-placed DUSTY STORM, who failed to get a clear run after looking the likely winner, is taken to reverse the form and score for Ed McMahon. Jofranka continues to run really well but like Angus Og is a front-runner and may set this up for the selection. Tumblewind was in good form earlier in the summer but may now be a few pounds high as a consequence.
