Verdict

Always a fiercely competitive heat and usually won by one well ahead of their handicap mark. KYNREN has long given the impression he has a huge race like this in him and with the step up in trip sure to suit, he's the tentative selection in a tough betting heat. New Graduate is the unexposed one in the line up and while he's got a hefty rise to cope with, the form of his Ripon win could hardly be working out any better. King's Field could be on a good handicap mark and is another lightly raced sort while it would be no surprise to see Raising Sand hit the frame at his favourite venue.
  1. Kynren
  2. New Graduate
  3. Raising Sand
