Verdict

OUR JERRY bumped into a well handicapped rival last time out at Gowran Park and is taken to bounce back to winning ways. The gelding can race off a similar mark as when winning at Stratford in June and given a clear round the eight-year-old holds strong claims. Linger has plenty to do at the weights but given his reliability it would not be a surprise to see him giving the selection most to do. The Abbey would rate a good chance as long as he improves his jumping. If he can iron out those errors then he has plenty of ability and can make the frame.
  1. Our Jerry
