Verdict

The market will tell us what's expected from Defy De Mee on debut today and if given connections, it's not hard to see him running a big race. But FIRST FIGARO has some decent form to his name already and won't be a pushover if he can repeat his latest effort. Icario is frustrating but the ability is there if he can put it all together and can challenge for the places, along with Call A Cab.
  1. First Figaro
  2. Defy De Mee
  3. Icario
