He draws the inside, and he has some changes to his bit. LORD OF DARKNESS has been around the mark and solid when 2nd behind Muffla at Clare last time. He should be in the mix from a middle gate. PERSIAN EMPIRE led when beaten 5 lengths behind Wild Willy last time but was a winner here in January. PRINCE TIKEA was runner-up at Bordertown before he made ground in the Wild Willy race last time and getting to 1800m looks ideal.
