Battle Lines (5/2), Corazon Espinado (9/2), Travelcard (9/2), Carp Kid (6/1), Yamuna River (13/2), Mr Carbonator (8/1), Felisa (14/1), Reverberation (N/A), Poetic Steps (N/A), Iconic Sunset (N/A), Polly's Gold (N/A), Sharp Reminder (N/A)

Verdict
Three-year-old handicaps are often difficult to work out and this one is no exception. Travelcard was very consistent as a two-year-old but he does have to overcome a fairly lengthy break and a career high mark as he returns to action. Both Felisa and Carp Kid look as though they need to find more improvement and it may be that CORAZON ESPINADO can continue her upward curve now that he has a handicap win to his name. Battle Lines looks the best of the James Tate pair although he could do with a real test of stamina at this trip.
