Total Tap found his winning run coming to an end when upped in class last time but is fancied to get back on track now he drops back into a $16k claimer (last two wins at this level). Main danger My Cowboy will be tough to pass from the front but he could well get a bit of pace pressure from the likes of Fox Rox.
Big Spender was no match for a runaway winner last time, but he had excuses that day having suffered some trouble at the start. The selection drops in class in this contest and should have enough speed to be forwardly placed from the outset. Broadway Pete also gets some much-needed class relief and can claim minor honours.
The form of Maroon Maniac’s debut second here in February is looking relatively strong, with several subsequent winners emerging from it. He can get off the mark at the second time of asking. Chad Brown’s Economic Policy possesses a similar profile to the selection and rates the biggest threat.
Seize the Hay ran well to finish second on debut here last month despite being forced wide on the home turn. He should progress with that experience under his belt and can get the better of Turn of Events. Freedom’s Flight also commands respect.
South Sea posted a big speed figure when second at Parx on his most recent start and has now joined the David Fawkes barn. Leading rider Luis Saez takes the mount, which adds to the attraction. Brass Compass is likely to go close too, while Where Paradise Lay is another worth looking at.
Classy Lyn was stretched by the longer trip last time and should be much better suited dropping back to the distance of her impressive win here on her penultimate start. Here Comes Jackie usually competes in better contests than this and should also be on the premises, while Sundrenched completes the shortlist.
