In depth

Verdict

This is even trickier than the first division as only one of the runners, Black Geronimo, has managed to win a race and that was a claimer on the Fibresand. Incurs Four Faults has his first run away from the Fibresand while Feisty Dragon has had three runs on the Polytrack and has been well beaten on each occasion. Tunnel Tiger is only a plater but Jessy Mae was third in a Southwell maiden last time and may be progressing. The handicapper thinks NISSAKI KASTA and Aurelia Cotta are the best horses in the race and we concur. If Hughie Morrison's filly reproduces the form she showed on debut at Newbury in September, she'll win this.
