Verdict

TRISMEN was successful in a $16,000 claimer here last month and his latest performance can be forgiven as his connections tried to settle him in behind, when the four-year-old is at his best bowling along from the front. A more aggressive ride can see the Dennis Ward-trained gelding beat the likes of Ten Guitars and Arangol today.

Calisi's Warrior put in an improved performance lately and that could spark his career into life and he can challenge again along with Quick Coconut who has been slightly frustrating to follow as of late. However, DREXELS GOLD has been knocking on the door lately and maybe the one to side with in this tricky contest.

Verdict

Chief White Sox was impressive on debut and can go close once again here, and confirm the placings with Kentucky Breeze from last time. However, it may be best to side with the more experienced THURSTON who was narrowly denied and can go close again now.
