Verdict

It may be worth siding with FAINT HOPE. Grace Harris' charge put in a solid effort in novice company on his first run after a wind operation last time, and was always more likely to be a better handicapper. If improving again, as horses often do on their second run after wind surgery, he could get off the mark here. The lightly-raced Spin A Yarn and the in-form Rothman are others with claims.
