Forecast

Dont Kick Nor Bite (4/1), Three Wise Men (5/1), Black Zero (6/1), Double Island (6/1), Boher Call (13/2), Capture The Drama (7/1), The Mooch (11/1), Prickly (12/1), Leap Dearg (16/1), Ludo Et Emergo (20/1), Westerners Son (20/1), Pumbaa (20/1)

Verdict
Top weight THREE WISE MEN can make a winning handicap debut here having finished runner-up behind the useful Min last time out. The selection returns from a break here but has shown enough over fences to suggest he can take a competitive handicap like this. Capture The Drama is taken to finish second as he bids to register a third win in his last four starts while Prickly can claim third on his first appearance in handicaps.
  1. Three Wise Men
  2. Capture The Drama
  3. Prickly
