Verdict

LOVE THE LEADER has been in good form this season and he is taken to register a fourth victory in his last five starts by taking this competitive handicap chase. The selection has the trip to suit and can get the better of the mare Maybe Plenty who ran well on her return to handicaps last time. Only Gorgeous ran well when placed last time and he can finish third.
  1. Love The Leader
  2. Maybe Plenty
  3. Only Gorgeous
