Verdict

Polar Forest has been threatening to get his head in front at this track for some time now. He may finally come good today given he finished a couple of lengths ahead of Do More Business when fourth on his latest start. But BOND ARTIST is preferred and taken to follow up her recent course and distance win off only a 2lb higher mark as the runner-up Benandonner has subsequently franked the form with a win. Something went amiss Katmai River last time, though he's usually thereabouts at this level while Amber Moon went close off today's mark here back in January and could also figure.
