Kiwi jockey Grant Davison can continue his burst of form by taking the eighth event on All Brave (best bet) at Taipa this afternoon.

Davison has been enjoying a prolific season and with 20 winners lies fifth in the standings, seven behind the accomplished French pilot William Mongil. In his last race, All Brave was unlucky when he was checked and blocked on the far rail before finishing with a flourish to run half a length second to Goldfinger in a 1,000-metre dash.

The move to 1,200 metres should not present a problem.

Hardest to beat could be the veteran Sea Coral Treasure while Mongil's mount, Li Jiang Beauty, should also be prominent for a long way.

The Joe Murphy-trained Impressive Dancer looks the answer to the opening griffin event. Impressive Dancer is a big, powerful sort who should have progressed for his debut run when chasing home another of today's opponents Champion Forever.
