SETTING THE MOOD shaped with abundant promise when second at this track on debut in March and should appreciate the extra half-furlong she gets to work with in this similar contest. Ocean Air also ran well when fourth in the same race and should be the main danger.
Second on his last two starts, BIG SPENDER now makes his first start in the care of Saffie Joseph, a trainer who boasts excellent numbers with new acquisitions. Broadway Pete has a decent chance on these terms and can emerge second best, while Steadily also demands consideration.
STAR JUANCHO hasn’t pulled up any trees recently but now plunges in class for a new trainer, while also picking up the services of top jockey Irad Ortiz. Expect a much-improved showing from the five-year-old this time around. Rayswarrior and Silent Tiger look best of the opposition.
PREACHER MARSEE’s most recent effort when well beaten on dirt is best ignored and he should put up a much better showing returned to his favoured turf surface. Bodie Cody could well emerge as best of the rest, while Bahamian Park should also be considered.
