Makhzoon is best off at these weights and should mount a bold bid in what represents his easiest assignment to date, while Long Distance makes plenty of appeal having gamely won in this company at Carlisle 40 days ago. The vote, however, goes to Gordon Elliott's WESTERN BOUND. The 11-year-old has won both of his previous visits to the Perth, in April and May last year, and drops into claiming company for the first time this afternoon.
