In depth

Verdict

Khelino is a low grade handicapper going well at present but was just behind the lightly-raced Eljowzah here last week and the latter is expected to be in the shake-up. Coppertop was narrowly beaten by Khelino in November and looks held on these terms but MOUNTRATH, a winner in the UK for Gary Moore, ran a fine race for new connections here three weeks ago when less than a length behind Clare Harrier in a handicap and this looks a good opportunity. Daisy Mountain was well beaten in that latter race and has never won on the surface in 13 starts.
