Autism Is Here and Plate Side both have to be considered but the preference is for MANITOU, who won a valuable event over C&D late last month.

SP
Successful at 4f and 5f on the all-weather. Finished 19l behind Right Hand Man when fifth of 6 at 55-1 on his latest outing at Los Alamitos Race Course over 5f earlier this month. He is better than that form suggests.

Spotlight Form: 625445
SP
A winner at 5f on the all-weather. Finished 6l behind Closing Time when fifth of 7 at 3-1 on his latest outing at Del Mar over 5f last month. Others make more appeal.

Successful at 5f and 6f on good ground. Beaten 14l behind Rideo at 11-1 when 10th of 12 on his latest outing at Golden Gate Fields over 1m (good) earlier this month. Can go well.

SP
Successful at 4f and 5f on the all-weather. Beaten a short head by Manitou when second of 6 at 6-4fav on his latest outing at Golden Gate Fields over 5f (good) last month. Should give that rival a race once again today.

He has won four times from 5f to 6f on good ground and on the all-weather. Finished 2 1/4l behind River House when fourth of 6 at 11-2 on his latest outing at Golden Gate Fields over 6f earlier this month. May not be good enough.
