Three of them who are in top form —Toroloco, Onassis and Storm Tracker — are expected to be seriously concerned at the business end, with the first-named having a slight edge.
Archie, who seems to have struck very good from as evidenced by his last victory at Pune, attracts as a good bet of the afternoon; whereas War Horse, who might run friendless in the Bayer Trophy, appeals as a decent chance bet.
