PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Circuit Glory has been more disappointing than not this season but found the line reasonably well for a C&D fourth behind Marvel Dragon after a deep run behind midfield latest and is clearly well-rated at this level. He's an each-way chance. Picken is working off a career high in the handicaps but did get up for a second C&D win three back and was still hitting the line well in a recent fourth to Flying Sword. He won't disgrace. Relentless Me has had a terrific campaign, including a near fifth win last start when only getting run down by Win Win and Lobo's Legend after surging to the lead 300m out latest. He might get posted from gate eight but won't go down without a fight. Eligere needs to lift over this trip but has improved to place once each behind the likes of Ka Ying Legend and Beauty Amigo from his past five starts and can get up for a minor slice.
