Verdict

The drop back to 5f didn't faze Dorothy's Dancing here earlier in the month and Gary Moore's mare seems certain to be a factor in this under 7lb claimer Ned Curtis, despite stepping up a grade. The Strig, on the other hand, hasn't won over the minimum on Polytrack since 2011 and has been pretty much in the handicapper's grip since scoring over 6f here in November, though he did finish ahead of Billy Red at the track in January and re-opposes on better terms after the latter's recent victory over 6f. Rylee Mooch is capable on his day but has two ways of running and Go Nani Go will surely need this so we'll take a chance on FALASTEEN. It's almost two years since the latter was last in the winner's enclosure but he's thrown in on his old form and Milton Bradley is a past master at reviving the fortunes of sprinters who have lost their way.
