Last Supper is the highest rated of those with an official mark. She's had plenty of chances in similar contests, however, and so have Green Mitas and Peak Storm. A newcomer won't have to be anything special to land this but despite Major Buckley having numerous winning relatives he's expected to be better over longer distances and HAFTOHAF is preferred. Marco Botti's colt is a half-brother to three winners, including three-time course winner Avonvalley, and could prove good enough on his racecourse debut.
