Verdict

Street Poet bids for a hat-trick of course wins having landed a double over longer trips last month and has the beating of Grey Destiny. But wind surgery had the desired effect on POET’S PRIDE as David Barron’s charge returned a convincing winner over track and trip last month and another bold bid is expected. In Trutina went close in a classified race here last week and Critical Thinking is not out of this dropping down in class. Corrida De Toros and Take Fright remain unexposed with headgear fitted to the latter for the first time.
