Verdict

An average division of this handicap, A FEW BOB SHORT brings the best winning form to the fore and looks set to go well on his seasonal return. It should have been two wins from his last two starts bar his disqualification last time, but he has shown he is capable off his current mark and goes well fresh. Previous form lines clash again but this time Drummer is weighted to go better than Noble Intention, while the likes of Nam and Future Gold showed glimpses of finding their best form last time, and the step up to 1m4f could bring out the best in them.
  1. A Few Bob Short
  2. Drummer
  3. Nam
