Verdict

The handicapper may have erred on the side of caution with PRESS CONFERENCE after his impressive maiden win last time, but he is utterly unexposed, and could well defy his initial mark given the scope he has for improvement. Musical Slave has won both his handicaps at around 2m, and looks capable of better again at this trip, so is shortlisted along with Rock de Baune, who beat Tuesday's impressive Grade 1 winner Klassical Dream as a juvenile.
  1. Press Conference
  2. Musical Slave
  3. Rock De Baune
