3 MILITARY MIGHT: Bounced back to win on May 3, after a torrid midweek run when a short-priced favourite. Looks more than capable to go on with the last start performance over the 1,600m distance.

RACE 12 BELMONT (1,200M)

1 LUCKYGRAY: Not much more needs to be said about this horse, four from four at the track, five wins from eight starts over 1,200m. It’s a freak.
