Verdict
A closely contended handicap, preference is for top weight ISLAND HIDEAWAY, who did well to win here two starts ago and is being given a chance by the handicapper after her previous effort. Her tendency to come from the back of the field eliminates any draw bias and she should be swopping late, which suits this C&D. Far Rockaway is progressing with racing and isn't far away from a victory but comes up against a smart rival in this, while Glorious Caesar takes a drop in class and is well-treated for his debut in this company.
