Yet to make the top half of the field in his opening six starts; 12lb drop during that period has made him eligible for Class 5 and has never gone beyond 1m1f; still hard to fancy.

12/1 Hyperion Tree, 20/1 Make It Turbo, 8/1 Crown Avenue, 9/2 Eevee, 11/2 Flying Mighty, 25/1 Great Treasure, 12/1 Go Ballistic, 7/1 Sky Gem, 5/1 Amazing Boy, 9/1 Fortune Patrol, 14/1 Flash Famous, 20/1 Turf Brilliant, 33/1 Oriental Amigo, 33/1 Wealthy Employee, Jolly Forever, Loyal Ambition

Verdict

In a field where most of his opponents are off form, EEVEE looks likely to post a bold showing and, with Joao Moreira in the plate for the first time, can get off the mark at the 13th time of asking. Flying Mighty has proved expensive to follow but is undoubtedly well handicapped, a remark that is even more applicable to Flash Famous, who makes each-way appeal.
