Secret Wizard won this in 2016 and the assessor has given him a chance dropping him 4lb despite finishing third at Gowran, though a wide outside draw won't aid his cause. Try Again has been running well on the Flat and over timber and the going was probably too quick for him at Naas last time while Insignia Of Rank has been staying on in recent starts over this trip and will enjoy the softer conditions. Cache Queen has been racing over much further and may not have the pace and her yard may have a better chance with Military Hill, who doesn't look badly treated. Kevin Manning rides the lightly-raced Uluru Park though wouldn't have been able to make the weight on Jim Bolger's VOCAL RELATION, who has only had four starts and shown enough to get a speculative vote in a tricky handicap.
