Competitive. STATE TROOPER returned to best after a coughing spell previously and could feature. HOW DOES IT TASTE looks above average and if ready after almost a year could take honours. OLD MAN TYME will be better suited to the lesser distance with blinkers on. PURPLE DIAMOND could run on late to earn. DOUBLE O' EIGHT could turn it around with AMERICAN HUSTLE at the weights.
