MOSMAN and Ellaal both scored over track and trip before finishing second off a higher mark last time. The former gets a tentative vote to come out best given his win came in this grade while Ellaal was victorious in a lowly Class 7 affair. Polish Forest was only beaten a length here in October but is still without a win in 17 starts and Cane Cat has just the one victory to his name since 2011. Pim Street popped up here in November but has been tailed off in a couple of subsequent starts.
