Verdict

Four recent C&D winners to consider in a competitive handicap. FLYING POWER gets the nod as beat the re-opposing Ascendant and The Lock Master with a subsequent winner further behind last time and looks to have the strongest form. Mica Mika scored here a fortnight ago but has yet to win off today's higher mark while the veteran Kames Park popped up in a lower-grade race last week. Renegotiate looks a bigger threat as he recorded a cosy win here earlier in the week, though this is tougher under a penalty.
