Flame Lily is building towards a win after finding the front from wide gates for a third to True Grit and recent second to Smart Patch in back-to-back runs over this C&D. Godspeed comfortably got up from midfield for a C&D win earlier this month at his second start in Class Five and was a near-winner last season off an identical mark. He'll go close. Gentry quickened nicely to win three back over this C&D before failing once each from gates 10 and 11. He should be close in the run from an inside draw and needs to be kept safe. Le Panache keeps promising without saluting in nine of 13 starts in this grade, including a closing sixth recently over the 1,400m, after an easy Class Five win over the 1,600m to start the campaign. He can place.
