Verdict

A number of these make their debuts in handicap company here, creating a bit of a conundrum for punters, but one of those, MIGHTY THUNDER, gets the vote. Lucinda Russell's five-year-old should welcome this step up in trip after a couple of decent efforts over shorter and he looks potentially well treated. A similar comment applies to Doc Carver, though he does have a bit to prove after his last two runs. Absolutely Dylan also looks to be fairly treated and is not ruled out, while Snougar is the other to catch the eye.
