Magical Speedfit and Rocker have won the last two renewals of this race but both will have to defy higher marks if they're to record repeat successes. Magical Speedfit was a little disappointing on Saturday but has been running well in the main and had several of today's rivals behind when chasing home Ajjaadd on his penultimate start; George Margarson's charge has an excellent course record and seems certain to be involved. Make My Dream is another with a decent record at the track, Colorus took advantage of a sliding mark at Goodwood but KINIGI has been in terrific form; her winning run has shown no signs of stopping and she may be able to bag another contest before the handicapper catches up with her.
