Watch it. Comment.
TCI Top 5 Mile
|1||Wise Dan||Tremendous recent form earns him this ranking, and his tactical speed will make him tough to catch at SA|
|2||Excelebration (Ire)||Won 8 straight when not facing Frankel; He and Wise Dan have both beaten Cityscape by 3L|
|3||Doubles Partner||Hard luck sort has enough quality to surprise this field late if he gets a good pace and trip|
|4||Moonlight Cloud (GB)||Classy filly has won 2 of her last 3 starts in G1s over boys, but does appear to prefer softer ground|
|5||Mr. Commons||Hasn’t met expectations in 2012 but could factor late if he puts it all together on his home course|
