GROSS MISCONDUCT has won five times over this trip and served notice that a return to winning ways was imminent when rattling the crossbar over C&D when last sighted. Mr. Takahashi rarely runs a bad race and is the one expected to put up most resistance. Big runs from the likes of Marquee Marini and Carl Command would also come as no surprise.
