Verdict

Sireric has found a new lease of life in recent months and is taken to hold off the likes of Maraud, Teejay and Fifteen Reds, in a tight race to call. His front running antics have paid handsome dividends when the conditions have been in the old boy's favour and he may just have too much resilience for this moderate bunch today.
