Verdict

A few that are of interest in this finale with CELMA DES BOIS taken to build on his promising handicap debut with his bumper form giving hope that he is better than this mark. Uncle Percy looks the type to offer more on the back of wind surgery from a good yard and could well prove better than this grade. Ballyhome also shaped nicely last time and can make his mark as he moves into handicaps with Bronzallure a similar type and any market moves for him should be noted coming from a shrewd yard. Breaking Ground has run some sound races recently in handicaps although he might just look a little vulnerable here to the unexposed runners.
