BIG TIME MAYBE has enjoyed a consistent season, most of which has been on artificial surfaces, but his two most recent runs back on Turf read well and he should offer up a prominent showing with Cieren Fallon's claim a definite bonus. Glamorous Rocket shaped far better last time after a quiet campaign and now needs to back that up but course and distance winner Ghepardo has produced a competitive sequence of late and seems sure to be in the shake-up. The Lacemaker has been really low-key on recent starts but the form of Pink Iceburg is not as bad as actual form figures suggest and the sole three-year-old in the line up is not discounted.
