In depth

Verdict

Hey Listen was only beaten half-a-length in a higher grade at Perth last month but has been raised 5lb since. Oishin is another eased in grade while Calypso Delegator is less exposed than some. BACK TO BALLOO won here last summer off an 8lb higher mark. Recent form has left much to be desired but he is surely still capable of figuring in a race like this with Ryan Winks claiming 5lb. Louloumills and Lucarno Dancer are probably best watched following a lay-off.
