Verdict
LORD ERSKINE has not raced since July but the gelding was in fine form, winning twice and finishing runner-up on his last start. The seven-year-old goes well fresh and as long as the ground does not become too desperate then he should go well. Muhaafiz looks on the upgrade and there was plenty to like about his recent win at this track. Should be continue to show his recent relish then he has an excellent chance of following up. Bythesametoken has been running very well in defeat in his most recent outings and he is capable of landing a race like this off his current mark.
  1. Lord Erskine
  2. Muhaafiz
  3. Bythesametoken
