Flying Noble instantly struck with Zac Purton hopping on board last month over this C&D. Silvestre de Sousa gets the call up from an ideal gate and can win another. Triumphant Light was only denied by The Full Bloom two back following a one-out, one-back run over this C&D and had excuses last time out. Zac Purton retains the ride and he can have a say in the finish in his first start under trainer Paul O'Sullivan. Best Effort is clearly capable of winning a race at this level and only found Flying Noble and Never Better too good following a midfield run last start. He'll need to spot them a head start from his wide gate but merits inclusion at a price. Royal Prerogative was twice third earlier in the term over this C&D and will likely come on from a closing sixth on the dirt for his new trainer. He's drawn to get the run of the race and is a place chance.
