Verdict

This is a good race for the grade around here and one where the expensive point-to-point winner PHOENIX WAY is taken to utilise his allowance to get the better of previous scorers Commanche Red and Third Wind. The selection flopped on debut but was more professional last time in a race that is working out well and this trip should suit. It's Got Legs hails from a yard with a good record in this and has each-way prospects now dropping in distance and class.
  1. Phoenix Way
  2. Commanche Red
  3. It's Got Legs
