Zero Hedge has a win in his sights after following up back-to-back seconds, including a close C&D effort behind Star Superior, with a rallying trip sixth to Fortune Happiness after missing the kick from the widest alley. He's drawn to get all favours and can salute if he jumps on time. Dollar Reward has come up unlucky once on each surface after easily overhauling Viva Council in October to start the campaign with back-to-back wins over this C&D. He remains a live chance. Supreme Patrol followed up a solid fifth to Fortune Happiness after a tough run in his initial AWT run with a neck third behind that same rival following a speed-chasing run. He'll go close. Foodie Princess made a nice impression for fourth behind Star Superior in his initial AWT run two back and is a place chance.
