Verdict

A very good turnout for this 1m handicap, and there are plenty in this field who are dipping their toes into handicap company for the first time. One of those is Lady Arona, who posted a much-improved, career-best effort when fifth in a Naas maiden over this trip last time out, and is a fascinating contender on her handicap debut. Cerberus is also worth keeping an eye on. His riders claims offsets his burden of top-weight and he has already shown enough to suggest he can win at this level. The selection is WILDEWOOD though, who was an underwhelming favourite on his first start in this sphere last month, but is worth another chance after the promise he showed in maidens.
  1. Wildewood
  2. Cerberus
  3. Lady Arona
