MISTER DECORUM (5) started from gate 4 at Marburg last start and after rolling forward looking for the breeze, had a game of musical chairs and found the pocket trail as that horse rolled out to take the chair. Chasing hard for 3rd it was a tidy effort, as was his run behind SPECIAL RESERVE 2 starts back and this looks right up his alley.
FORTES IN FIDE (4) worked to the front from gate 2 last start at Marburg and setting even panels over the 2200m, just couldn’t see it out. 2nd here 2 starts back when chasing from gate 5, if he can limit the early burn, he will be ready to offer a closing challenge.
BETTING BARON (8) worked home in good order wide off the track last start over the AP mile and was within 3m of the winner COBALT BLUES. His run 2 starts back was a solid effort and he can be in the mix here.
ROLLONX (6) isn’t given any favours from the wide gate at just his 2nd run back for his 3YO term. A tidy winner when returning back on Sept 2, he faces some experienced campaigners here.
