HENRY CRAIG suffered a surprise defeat here recently but that was only his second loss in a nine-race career and he should prove too strong for this lot if back on song. Perrys Gettin Down made the frame in a stakes contest so is the one for exacta punters, with the progressive The Cartel Hawk perhaps the pick of the remainder.
