Verdict
SMILING ELIZA has been loitering with intent over 7f here lately and this longer journey could bring a bit more out of her. Her draw isn't ideal, but she's compensated somewhat with Oisin Orr's 3lb claim, which could prove very useful, and she can land this prize. Haunting Vocals has gone up 7lb having improved to score on testing ground last time out and may struggle now as a results. Check Your Pockets has the champion on board for this handicap bow while top-weight Teardrop Island is also respected now dipping into handicaps for the first time.
