Captain Genius would be too good for these if in his prime but he has only appeared once in more than three years, and Jade Dragon is also one to worry about on his first outing since September 2016. CHILL pipped Red Fever to complete a brace here last month and that could be the form to focus on, with it expected to be confirmed.
