    Also given the horse was off 557 days surely he is entitled to improve for the run.

    The horses to beat him over fences are as follows:

    Whisper - who he gave 5lb to by 2.5L now rated 167.
    Top Notch - beat 5L now rated 162, had the now 156 rated Le Prezien in behind in 3rd.
    Road To Respect - Beat 6L giving him 1lb now rated 169.
    Charbel - beat him by a head and was ahead again after the line in receipt of 12lb follow 557 day lay off.

    For me the big thing is if Jamie Moore is on him.

    I would agree IF it wasnít for the 557 days off the track.
    Some folks will say heíll improve for the run, others will say he will bounce. Personally, I think heíll run up to the same mark as when he was narrowly beaten by Charbel, and Iím not sure whether that will be good enough to win.

    I shortlisted Baron Alco, but thereís a niggle here and a niggle there despite his form as a novice.

    After analysing form, trend and watching previous races, you end up making a decision, and Iíve decided Kalondra is the fine for me. I can see Alco being in the frame - top 4, and Benatar is the joker in the pack.

    The rest will be left to fight over scraps
