CAPTAIN CHORUS is the best bet on today's card. He has very good consistent form lines to his credit. He moved up well last time and fought hard to hold all challengers at bay. The son of Captain Al should have no issues with the extra furlong on offer and can notch up his fourth career victory. BRAND NEW CADILLAC was well-beaten into fourth in the Listed WSB Racing Association Handicap, eight weeks ago. The 6yo gelding will enjoy the drop back in distance and may be hard to peg back. GOLD GRIFFIN finished 3 lengths behind the top selection last time. He is 3kgs better off at the weights today and there should not be much separating the pair in the run down to the line. PORT KEY produced a typical second run after a rest last time. He has won once and finished second once from as many starts on this course. The son of Silvano is having his peak run today and should be cherry-ripe. If seeing out the extra distance on offer, he should be involved in the fight to the finish.
