Verdict

A 12lb rise in the weights may not be enough to stop JOSEPH MERCER in his hat-trick bid. He has made all to win his last two races with plenty in hand and he meets a few of his recent vanquished rivals again here. The pick of these is Dance And Romance who gets a big pull for the flattering 11L she has to find with him on running a month ago. American Life has a tendency to drop himself out of races before plugging on. He can ill afford to give the selection a head start and he may also prefer a stiffer track than this.
  1. Joseph Mercer
  2. Dance And Romance
