Verdict
STOKED has been round the houses but has shown enough talent to suggest one of these could be in his wheelhouse. He goes well fresh and gets the nod in a devilish contest for punting. Handicap debutant Littlevix has potential from this opening mark while recent Dundalk winner Dance Alone is potentially well treated on UK turf form. Luna's Luck should appreciate a bit of better ground while Waitaki has been given a chance by the assessor and joins the filly Little Miss Willow in completing a list of potential contenders.
  1. Stoked
  2. Littlevix
  3. Waitaki
