Another chance is given to Segal but Admiral Dundas and Bon Ton Roulet have both shown ability and are respected. Segal failed to show on debut but has progressed with each of his last two starts over 7 furlongs and looks sure to benefit from this longer trip. Seb Sanders and Jeremy Noseda are always to be respected when they team up and the Cadeaux Genereux colt won't be far away. Admiral Dundas was beaten under 3 lengths into fifth over 7 furlongs here on debut and looks sure to improve for both that experience and this longer trip. Bon Ton Roulet is progressing but may fare better once handicapping over further and there's a pair of interesting newcomers here. Support for either Shadowtime or Ten Hour Lunch would be worth noting but Segal is taken to land the spoils.
