Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

WAR OF ATHENA won a good race in her last start over 1600m on this course. She has won three times, finished second once and third once from as many starts over this C&D. The classy daughter of Act Of War should notch up her 12th career victory this afternoon. MK'S PRIDE is much better than his last start as he was reported to be making an abnormal respiratory noise. He has won twice and finished second once from as many starts over this C&D. The son of Willow Magic merits healthy respect. IKIGAI was given a peach of a ride when winning the Listed Christmas Stakes last time. He took the lead at the 250m mark that day and held on where it matters most. Gavin Lerena retains the ride and the combination can follow up. CIRILLO was in need of his comeback run over 1000m on this course. It must be noted that the form of that race has been franked. He has won twice and finished third once from four starts over this C&D. He should strip much fitter and can return to best form.
