Kutayha recorded a lovely win here at Randwick-Kensington last time, and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again this afternoon.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding has continued to improve with each start back this time, and he was rewarded for his condition with a lovely win last time out.
He should only improve further getting out to 1800m and James McDonald retains the ride.
Caffrey looks well placed to score second-up at Moe today.
He was a bit frustrating from a betting perspective last time, often promising plenty and failing to deliver, but his resuming effort this time for second behind Loveplanet at Sandown was eye-catching.
He harbours plenty of upside and a class edge over a lot of these rivals.
This shapes as the perfect race for Arctic Thunder.
Arctic Thunder doesn’t win out of turn, but he has continued to return quality efforts throughout his long preparation, and he takes his place in this field off the back of an eye-catching run for second at Rosehill Gardens.
He’s rock-hard fit and drawn to receive every chance today under Tommy Berry.
I’m going to give Wander another chance third-up and dropping back in class on the Kensington course this afternoon.
The Richard Litt-trained gelding ran home well to fill the minors at Rosehill when resuming, but he failed to quicken when the pressure went on in a Saturday race at Randwick last time.
Fitter again and from the good draw, I think he has real claims in something like this.
