Verdict

Denis Hogan has a strong hand here, having taken over CAESAR'S COMET from Peter Fahey, and the 4-y-o gelding looks an improved performer this year, so should go well. Stablemate Gopsies Daughter was a close fifth in a huge field here last time, and is arguably better at this trip, so looks one to be interested in as well, with Polly Douglas also considered from her reduced mark.
  1. Caesar's Comet
  2. Gopsies Daughter
