The Ryan/Alexiou trained colt was a dominant first up winner of the Eskimo Prince and should be suited fitter and up to 1400m. $4.20 was the opening price and he has been crunched, now into $2.90.
The Group l winner Aegon makes his Australian debut for the Baker/Forsman camp and looks well placed to make it 5/5 despite a strong set of nominations for the race. He is rock solid at $4.
The Team Hawkes trained North Pacific was a beaten favourite first up but is kept safe in betting, as a $4.50 chance and been rock solid since markets opened.
