Six Silver Lane has won 10 races and is back over his best trip after a narrow defeat by Free State, who runs earlier, over 1m2f. He's on the same mark as when last successful and has to be respected with Kevin Manning a significant booking. EASY BOY is very consistent and though 7lb higher than last month's victory he would have gone close to winning two weeks ago but for failing to obtain a clear run so he's handed the vote. Our Manekineko has had plenty of success around here and he's another to have dropped enough in the ratings to give him a chance of returning to winning ways. Manorov was behind the selection last time though should get closer on the revised terms while Windsorlot found 7f on the sharp side in November and wasn't beaten far.
