Verdict

You can make a case for almost everything here, but the handicapper is starting to give the evergreen PEARLS LEGEND a fair crack of the whip and he might be ready to strike after another solid effort last time. He tends to come good in the spring (was an excellent fifth in the Grand Annual from 8lb higher last season) and this looks his chance. With this tight track a worry for Plaisir D'Amour, it could be left to Dream Bolt to chase him home, with the consistent Canicallyouback taking the bronze.
