Verdict

WHISKEY SOUR has already won here this week and he can defy a 7lb penalty by following up his success in Monday's feature by taking this competitive handicap here. The selection has won both of his starts since joining this stable and can take this with Haripour, who drops in grade having contested a Group 2 contest last time out taken to claim second ahead of Sweet Company who wears cheekpieces for the first time today having finished behind the selection earlier this week.
  1. Whiskey Sour
  2. Haripour
  3. Sweet Company
