Verdict

C'EST NO MOUR has proven how effective he is at the course and can be forgiven his run when last seen. A useful claimer taking off 5lb should help Lorelina in a bid for another course success but Golden Wolf still looks well-handicapped here and could be the main danger.
  1. C'Est No Mour
