Verdict

This looks a fairly wide open contest but it may pay to stick with recent winners and the selection is MISTY ADAGE who had been slowly gearing up for success before winning last time out at Clonmel. There may still be some more improvement to come meaning she can take her extra weight in the handicap in her stride. If she does falter then a horse like Ask And Answer could take advantage. He has been a model of consistency of late and deserves another win. Killisk Ben Rose has to race from out of the handicap but she has been making steady progress of late and may go well at a fair price.
