Verdict

MOLLY CAREW has been third and second in two handicaps this term and can again go one better here with her clearly still improving. Undefined Beauty is another going the right way although she doesn't look quite as well handicapped as the selection. Unidisputed is lightly raced so she too is capable of better and enters calculations.
  1. Molly Carew
  2. Undefined Beauty
  3. Undisputed
