Verdict

Not a particularly deep contest at first glance, and if he improves on a promising C&D effort on just his second handicap start, ENCORE LUI is likely to make a bold bid. Riverdene has run respectably in a couple of stronger handicaps this autumn, and should be placed if continuing in similar vein, with Tin Town Liz and Spruced Up better than they've shown recently and worth a market check, the former starting out for a new yard, and the latter making his handicap bow for shrewd connections.
  1. Encore Lui
  2. Riverdene
  3. Tin Town Liz
