There's every chance that the highly-touted World Domination will be strongly supported in the market again but it's hard to support his chances after his seasonal reappearance when tailed off in a Sandown mudbath. He was eased off totally by Jamie Spencer that day and may still prove his worth but LOST IN THE MOMENT appeals as a safer option. He ran a fine race in the Melbourne Cup last season but his profile shows him to be just as effective over a wide range of trips as proved by a good third in last season's John Smith's Cup. He came up against Beachfire last term and there should be little between the pair again here but the Godolphin runner is just preferred. Cai Shen just failed to deal with Premio Loco here last time but he's an improving sort and shouldn't be far away in a competitive heat.
