Verdict

This looks a fairly weak ending to the card with Gordon Elliot looking to have a good chance of landing a 1-2 via the well handicapped winning hurdler KUIPER BELT and Hurricane Volta who could be on an equally competitive mark if rejuvenated by the trainer. Jan Smuts often runs his race around here and this is very much his trip but this mark looks tough for him these days and Pantomime with Paul Hanagan back on board appeals more. If there is one that is worth watching in the market then it’s Cosmic Tigress for the in-form Quinn barn and well weighted on some of her old form.
  1. Kuiper Belt
  2. Hurricane Volta
  3. Pantomime
