Following a winter break, MACHO ALPHA returned a much improved animal, making all over 5f here, and there is every chance that this unexposed three-year-old can lead his rivals a merry dance again. Spin Hard was a good distance ahead of third Kinzer when runner-up recently, and Mr. Top Fleet might find that this is his easiest assignment for a while.
