PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

More Than This has made some progress in his three starts and might appreciate the step back in distance after a fading 11th, beaten only three and a half lengths behind Earth Trilogy following a prominent run latest. He'll try to wire them at a price with the claim well utilised from a good gate. My Darling came away a near 1,200m win over Lean Perfection in February and pleasing C&D fourth to Hezthewonforus in May. He'll need luck from his gate but will find things easier in this grade. Assimilate had shown some ability before rattling home a close second behind the upset winner Winning Delight in a swiftly run C&D race. He'll go close. Good Beauty's honesty was rewarded with a second win following a C&D decision over Looking Good last start. He'll need to defy a rise in weight but won't have to beat much to have a say in the finish.
