Verdict

Gretzky won this a year ago, the second of his three victories on the track with the latest coming last month when he had Shake The Bucket behind. Carried started favourite but could only finish third behind Papa's Way a fortnight ago with Protaras around four lengths behind. The assessor appears to have taken a dislike to Timjoe as he went up the regulation 5lb for scoring here in November and has been raised twice more despite not winning. Shake The Bucket, Super Sling and Equation Of Time occupied the first three places in a similar handicap over slightly shorter in November. The latter is better off at the weights and should go well but the vote goes to DENNY LANE, who was behind Timjoe here three weeks ago but was having his first start since March and will improve.
