Verdict

A fairly strong handicap for the grade with quite a few having opportunities although those with a wide draw may need some luck in-running. Magic City and Rockwood are both best coming from off a strong pace and should get a race that sets up well for them here. With the Ruth Carr stable in good form a solid run is expected from Abushamah and Westwood Ho could well be worth another chance in a handicap. RED TEA shaped well on her return on the AW and her strong travelling style looks as though it will be suited by the way this race will be run.
  1. Red Tea
  2. Abushamah
