Verdict

The Andrew Oliver-trained WATCHMAN can get off the mark for confections at the eighth time of asking on his fifth start on turf. The Oasis Dream gelding posted a career best at Cork over 1m4f earlier this month and can improve for the drop in trip here. Highway To Heaven has continued to run with credit from a revised mark since winning a Gowran Park handicap in August and looks capable of another bold bid here along with top weight Wild Shot and the potential improver, Bear Claws. Emily Square and No Way Jack are a couple that could go well at a price.
