Verdict

It's difficult to be confident about any of these. Brian Sprout has gone close at this lowly level before but hasn't raced since January so a token vote goes to ITUM. He finished just ahead of today's rival and stablemate College Doll when runner-up in this grade over C&D last month with Pharoh Jake and Adaeze further behind and Christine Dunnett's charge may go one better today. C&D winner Vhujon has been back on a winning mark for a while without taking advantage but Green Mountain may finish closer dropping down in class.
