Rodeo Drive from the Sean Tarry stable takes her place in Race 2. She showed good pace before getting caught late in the Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship.

She was an impressive winner of her penultimate run over 1000m at the Vaal. The daughter of The United States has plenty of class and she should take a power of beating.

Her 1 win from 4 starts was achieved under jockey Craig Zackey who retains the ride today.

Hollywoodbets-sponsored Trainer Stuart Pettigrew sends out Silvano’s Song in Race 6. He may not have seen out the 2400m last time.

He was not beaten far when fourth in his penultimate run over this distance on the Inside course.

The son of Silvano finished second in his only attempt over this course and distance. He has dropped to a competitive rating and will be mowing down the frontrunners.
