SIR FRANK MORGAN landed the odds here last week with the minimum of fuss. A penalty is unlikely to prevent him going in again despite dropping back in trip. The consistent Tracks Of My Tears looks the main danger having gone close again behind the selection's stablemate Travel over course and distance last time. She's preferred to Pinotage, placed here recently and competing off the same mark as his last win way back in 2011. Dorry K and Hazzaat are struggling for form and hard to fancy.
