Verdict

SALIX is the choice in a tricky contest. Ben Pauling's youngster showed improved form in his first handicap last time and seems to be getting the hang off things. Echo Express rates a danger now encountering a sound surface, while top weight Gran Maestro has been in fair form and another good display is anticipated. Scented Lily and Norse Light are closely matched on recent running, while Agincourt Reef and Best Practice are others with the potential to improve.
