Felinious gets the confident vote here with Lordsbridge and Ambrosinni rating the main dangers. The selection was in great form when last seen, goes well fresh, remains on a fair mark and under conditions that suit is hard to oppose. Lordsbridge rates the main danger on his latest third behind Oberon Moon, form that looks solid and off the same mark here he has definite place claims. Ambrosinni was a fair second behind Hinton Thunderbolt when last seen and is another with place claims but he just gave the impression the handicapper had caught up with him on that occasion and he is taken on with this in mind. Call Oscar is lightly raced of late and took a heavy fall last time out but he has conditions to suit and if his confidence has not been affected he would have place claims. Oumeyade goes well fresh and is another that could go well. This is a trappy affair and the market will be informative but for the winner we return to the progressive Felinious.
