BUD KNIGHT impressed when obliging favourite backers here last time and is backed to follow up at the expense of the consistent Big Hoof Dynamite and Factorial, a $600,000 buy who went close here last weekend.
The consistent YOUR ROYAL COIL wasn’t beaten far when third here last month and looks worthy of keeping faith with here in a contest that sees course winner Awesome Amanda return from a long absence. Mucho Macho Woman was sent off favourite here last weekend and is another to consider.
Avalanche dead-heated for third when sent off favourite last month in a contest won by Red King, who has leading claims once again. However, this trip should play to the strengths of TINTORETTO, who could outstay the field if taking to the task on his first US start.
BIG SWEEP made the step up to this level with ease when landing a valuable stakes contest on just her second start and the unbeaten filly could take plenty of beating if in the same form. Smiling Shirlee also arrives in search of a hat-trick and has to be respected, while Warren’s Showtime has had a ticket to plenty of hot contests and never lets her connections down.
