Star Form:

PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Crown Avenue had been knocking on the door in his first three AWT runs this term before a fifth despite getting carved up 150m out by eventual winner Run Des Run 18 days back over this C&D. He'll need luck from gate 10 but has Karis Teetan and can figure. Speed Force proved a C&D win following a box-seat run two back was not a fluke when only finding rival Run Des Run too good latest. He's one of the chances. El Valiente might be better suited over the 1,800m but has been finding the line better for thirds in his past two runs over the AWT 1,650m and Joao Moreira should have him close in the run from gate six. He must be a chance. The 1,427-pounder Run Des Run might over race on the fence from gate three after causing havoc for several others when getting going from behind midfield to win going away 100m out last month over this C&D for his new trainer but seems to be heading in the right direction now and needs to be kept safe.
