Verdict

A beaten favourite on three occasions earlier this year, DUBAWI ISLAND popped up when least expected over track and trip on Tuesday. Dropping down a grade for this, he has the beating of Outpost on collateral form and can follow up under a penalty. Rakaan is hard to predict and beat lesser rivals in a claimer here last time while Idol Deputy steps up in class off a higher mark having won at this track last Saturday. Lowther, Lean On Pete and Exceedexpectations are other course and distance winners who give the impression they're high enough in the weights at present.
