It was only a claimer that FLEETWOODSANDS won here in June, but he beat higher-rated rivals than he faces today and can follow up. That was his fourth win at Dunstall Park and Milton Bradley's charge seems to raise his game when visiting this track. Schoolboy Champ and Euroquip Boy are recent winners on the turf and could be thereabouts, but Saturn Way is 5lb higher than his win at Kempton in May. Khajaaly and Abriachan have been placed on the Polytrack recently and are not easily dismissed off their current marks.
