Verdict

A typically strong yet difficult renewal of the Rockingham Handicap, plenty of form lines emerge together. Jungle Jane was an authoritative winner of a strong Tipperary handicap on her seasonal bow, in which Primo Uomo was in behind, and has the profile to go well once once again. The same can be said for Maid Of Spirit, but she looks less well-off compared to Fridtjof Nansen who was narrowly beaten by her that day. However, preference is for ALLIGATOR ALLEY, who still has the scope to be a top sprinter and drops into handicap company for this. He should be able to defy his lofty mark based on his previously impressive Group race form as a juvenile.
  1. Alligator Alley
